A smoggy day in Jakarta town
Nothing out of the ordinary you may say, the sky is gray smog again. This is my view from the Aryaduta Hotel, where I've been sleeping off my jet lag. It helps to have my big sister here; we're completely up-to-date on each other's lives again!
Tonight I depart for Kendari. In the meantime, the sign in front of my hotel room reminds of the fact that I must practice my Bahasa Indonesia. It reads: Be proud in speaking Indonesian. Probably big city Jakartans are ruining their language with English slang, so they need a governmental reminder to stay culturally pure. I'm trying to abide by it ; )
