This place is crowded, noisy, congested, polluted, and hot. I managed to have a bit of of a look around but the city's best museum (according to lonely planet) was closed when I got there. I went to Manggo Dua Mall which is one of the biggest shopping malls in the world and I got lost there. Finally managed to find an exit and took a 'baijak' (three-wheeled vehicle like tuk-tuks in Thailand) which took me through the backstreets of Jakarta and I saw some terrible poverty - people living in tiny close-together rubbish-stewn shacks.

Tomorrow I leave for Sumatra.
