roaming the world and enjoying the scenery...

A day at the park

Since we had a few days off this week, thanks to the Eid ul-Fitr holiday (know as Eidul Fitri or Lebaran here in Indonesia), we decided to take the opportunity to see a little bit of our newly adopted city. Besides splashing around in our pool and playing with the kitties, one of the things that Susan most wanted to see was the Tamin Mini Indonesia Indak – a series of outdoor pavilions dedicated to the various islands and regions around this country.

It is easy to lose sight of the fact that Indonesia is the 4th-largest country (by population) in the world, and is made up of literally thousands of islands, each with very unique cultures. Our visit to the park was supposed to give us a quick overview of our new home.

We were overwhelmed, however, by the sheer scale of the place – starting off with a cable car ride gave us a bird’s eye view of the huge park. As it turned out, many of the pavilions and activities were shut down because of the holiday; this was just as well, since there was more than enough to do anyways!

Take a look through our pictures and enjoy a glimpse of our first “cultural” outing in Jakarta!
