Sunda Kelapa, Old Port of Jakarta

The cities of Indonesia are archipelagos as much as is the entire country. The points of interest are like islands spread far apart and separated by tracts of urban sprawl. Each of the numerous times I visited Jakarta I ended up exploring different places that were not linked in any meaningful way to what I had seen during previous visits. I’ve always appreciated the city, but my experiences there are like multiple personalities that aren’t quite aware of each other.

The people are tough and hard-working, but friendly and with real things to say.
