While the area around the two hotels, J.W. Marriott and Ritz Carlton was still partly closed off, the rest of Jakarta looked like a Saturday morning when it was Saturday morning.

Wet feet in North Jakarta, 3 It didn't get better when I carefully lifted the plastic flap and reached outside with my head. A driver on a motorbike which was in some kind of a hurry could hardly avoid me. In front of us a long row of red lights in the streets. Between the vehicles I could mainly see water and more nearby I heard the water gush out of the draining canal onto the pavement and the street. Ooh well, it must be raining heavily somewhere close, because it was quite an amount of water that came rushing towards us. Slowly the three wheels of the bajaj disappeared under water. I was hoping that the water would not reach too high at the end, because after over half an hour in this kind of transport, sitting becomes quite uncomfortable.

Wet feet in North Jakarta, 2 All of a sudden I got a rush that I would be able to find a bajaj - a terrible orange noise factory on three wheels - driver who was to drive me around through these 'floods', the water was less than 30 centimeters high, so it didn't seem that terrible through my untrained eyes. My girlfriend wanted to join me as well, but not directly because she wanted to see it, but mainly because I had a stupid idea like this once again. Safety was the main reason I guess, however I would be able to save myself here. If water levels would reach high enough which was pretty unlikely given the fact that the sea was less than a kilometer away with a flat landscape - I would be able to swim home as well. That is the worse-case-scenario however, I prefer to stay as dry as possible.

Wet feet in North Jakarta, 1 Traveling by minibus we arrived in Jakarta from Bandung with a large detour via Soekarno-Hatta International Airport we were dropped at our destination, a boarding house in Pluit, a neighborhood in the far north of Jakarta. A friend of us also stayed in the boarding house, so it seemed like a nice idea to spend several nights there, also because there was a nice shower and air-conditioning of course. Without both it would be a pretty sweaty adventure in the always sticky city of Jakarta. In this case preventing is better than having to look for a cure later on, so we preferred a room in the boarding house. After we dropped our bags we ate something, because lunch time had already passed. After lunch we had a quick look around to see where we had ended up after all.
