Jakarta

This is a board of Jakarta- mine and my company's hometown. Here I'll be showcasing the gems of Jakarta. Yes- we have major poverty problems- but our economy is growing stronger (5.5+% per annum)- which means we have an ever decreasing poverty class and a rapidly expanding affluent class.

The Welcome Statue characters- these are Constructionist style statues depicting Indonesian Youth welcoming anyone from any nation- which were built when Jakarta was basically a large town with few buildings taller than a Mosque tower or cathedral spire.

Deutsche Bank and Daimler-Benz building to the Left, in front is Grand Hyatt and Plaza Indonesia. This picture must have been taken somewhere near the Mandarin Oriental. The very bright lights illuminate the fountain around a huge round-about where the Jakarta Welcome statue is. Gaian from user Tamas Tamasov

Another view of Cafe Moda. Yes- the blue mini-lagoon has koi carp under the floor. The right of screen is the cafe front where the matre d' resides- and also the brasserie-patisserie from Grand Hyatt's 5 star bakery. Very popular with the German Embassy staff (across the road!).
