Surrounding our Luxury is Another World

Intense day in Jakarta! 

First I'm struck constantly by the friendliness of everyone even though the language barriers and economic differences are immense. 

Second, a walk across the road (20 feet from the hotel gate) showed the third world nature here.  David and I took a stroll and were left with images that words can't really describe.

Pictures show the canal, primitive living conditions, fishing and one friendly fisherman, and a canal side cemetary with both marked and unmarked graves.

The final picture is the inside of our hotel lobby close by.
