*Jakarta* - Respect

Every now and then I get reminded about how important it is to travel to corners of the planet that I wouldn't normally go. It's an education that one can't put a price on. Jakarta, in 12 short days over the Christmas holiday, was that place.

Jakarta is a special city; a metropolis that usually gets mentioned in relation to oil and gas or as a stopover to Bali, but for one of the world's most populated cities in one of the world's most populated countries, it remains a bit of a mystery to most people, or it did to me, at least.

To try and wrap JKT around one single word is a bit tough, but if I was to try, it'd be 'respect'. The respect the Jakartans show to each other, to visitors, to the many religions that call this sprawling megacity home is humbling. I've been to quite a few big cities in my life, and never have I felt so welcomed as an outsider or visitor as I did in Jakarta. There's a whole lot of heart here.

Awesome collection. I had also a good time in Jakarta, even its a traffic nightmare and touristwise it has not much to offer. But i liked the people very much. Maybe more than on my visits to Bali.
