Welcome to Jakarta

This monument is the Selamat Datang monument, and selamat datang means “welcome”.  It is located in Central Jakarta.  I managed to shoot this from one of the top floors of an ACE home center in the Grand Indonesia Shopping Center.

The traffic looks nice right now, but an hour and a half later, when we left the mall, the “three lanes of traffic” were stuffed with somewhere between four and six lanes of drivers.  It seems that the traffic lanes around here are just suggestions.
