Jakartass Towers has had leaks this weekend where there weren't any last year, but at least we still have all our main services. All we lack, like the majority of Jakartans, is easy access to the big metropolis out there. We're a family of non-swimmers. And Telkom, the main hub of the internet, has taken a couple of days to dry out their main hub.
'Er Indoors has, as usual, been offering her help to the local families who are flooded out. This happens every year. I took these images a couple of days ago; they're from just a two minute stroll away.
Why is it that they could have been taken each and every year? Maybe SBY has the answer as he's announced that central government is taking over flood control responsibilities from City Hall.
We live this side of the River Ciliwung There was a shack here last night Social services at full stretch
