Jakarta jaunts..

Bluebird taxis, although cheap are pretty hopeless…they will literally take you for a ride! We went shopping last night for dvds in a shopping centre (don’t ask me where!) and then on to Old Jakarta (formerly known as Batavia) and finally found the famous old Batavia Cafe where I eagerly downed a Bintang (local beer)…didn’t touch the sides! Food was pretty good – Nasi Goreng (has to be done!) – minus the egg (personal choice). The ice cream dessert to share was awesome and came with sparkler – many different ice creams and sorbets and mixed fruit…half expecting someone to sing happy birthday (there was karioke downstairs – a national pastime)…we quickly exited stage left and found a taxi driver who took us straight home – amazing!!! look out for pizza man statue in the photos…all Indonesian statues have big hands – not sure why? not a cricketing nation…shame they would make marvellous wicket keepers.
