Day 8

There is no let up in the smog, the smoke, the smells or in the relentless pace of Jakarta - and why would there be?  Walking home I pass sights and people that are starting to become more familiar and will clearly be here long after my little sojourn is over.

I haven't been here long enough to get sick of it, but I guess a lungful of fresh air would be nice.

A couple of facts before I head off to a ridiculously lavish dinner downstairs.

  • Greater Jakarta is the world's second largest urban area with 28 million inhabitants and a population density of twice the world's largest urban area which is Greater Tokyo.
  • 5 million motorbikes join the roads every year in Indonesia.

Yep, its a busy, busy place alright.
