On our way to Raja Ampat islands internet connection disappeared and it was kinda nice to live
without for about 4 days, but I’ll tell you something a about this in the next post.
I landed in Jakarta, my first stop, it’s something crazy, more than 10 millions inhabitants, at least 5 millions motor-scooters. At every traffic light it seems that there’s a moto gp race starting, lines on the roads are pure decorations, thousand car drivers honking randomly, hypotheticals crashes everywhere but zero accidents.
Probably it’s not a new feeling for many people that travelled a lot but to me has been pretty uncomfortable noticing how many luxury and modern places are mixed with shacks. At the same time it’s fascinating to see all these poor people selling food along the road, facing life with great smiles and happiness, something unthinkable in our culture.
Anyway there’re no homeless here, everybody has a place to stay and try to find something to do, able to be kind with everyone, also with foreigners, exactly like it happens in a city that I know very well in Italy, northern Italy, nort-east…
The city is huge and I tried to visit something in about 20hrs..so…big malls, crazy traffic jam, al adhan (the call for prayers), national monument and by the of the day we collected a lot of pictures with local, they are interested about us like we could be attracted by famous actors and singer, pretty funny.
Anyway this one was just the first micro quick taste of Indonesia.
See you later
