I was on my way home with Andrew after attending my relative's 78th b'day lunch at Kramat Jati, East Jakarta. Pretty shocked actually to find out that my brother and I were trapped in unusual traffic (traffic jam, it is) along Gatot Subroto streets.
FYI, as a Jakartan who used to stuck in traffic, I tend to be panicky if the streets are quiet and deserted look-alike. There are only two things popped in my mind in that case; there's a bomb terror or rampages. Remember 1998 Jakarta riots or 2003 Marriott Hotel bombing? Then you must know what I mean.
Around 2 PM today, it turned out to be US Secretary of States Hillary Clinton's arrival in Jakarta that stopped the traffic! Lucky for me, there's still battery power remained on my digital camera to take a few snapshots. *grin*
Picture above was the AFTER traffic as soon as the entourage passed by. Welcome to Jakarta, Mrs. Clinton! Enjoy your stay and looking forward to hearing some good news from you!
