A Busway Adventure


Last week, i hosted my friend and colleague Lee San in my apartment in Jakarta. I was practicing my couch surfing skills 😛 ( http://www.couchsurfing.org/people/gkaounis77 )… I think all in all, i was a good host 😛 ha ha, self praise is no praise.

Anyways, on Saturday, our Jakartan friends Lucia & Tobias took us out for sight-seeing day via the busway. We took the busway as it was so much easier, and not to mention cheaper means of travel in Jakarta. No traffic jam. No macet. No joke 🙂

Where we are, and where we're going

 
Many may be surprised how green Jakarta really is. Yet, it’s still quite hazy due to the huge number of cars…

The bus got more and more passengers as it drove on…..
 

Through the crowd

 
Overall, the busway is still a cheap & efficient way of getting around Jakarta. It was a bit hot as the crowd number increased…. but still, my verdict, a must try 🙂 You instantly meet locals and that’s the whole point of travelling.
 
By the way, we saw this guy with a SIX pack from the busway 😛
 

he he, this is what i call a 6 pack la 😛

 
So after the bus ride, where did we go? Ha ha, that’s for me to share on another day.
 
 Thank you for your time and i hope you’ve had a great start to your week 🙂 Have a great week ahead. cheers.
