My first experience of minor flooding here in Jakarta. This was after less than 20 minutes of heavy rain and the impact on traffic is utterly ridiculous and incredibly frustrating.
The first two photos were taken on Jalan Sudirman, Setiabudi which is a block or two from our apartment. The last few were taken around the back streets near our apartment.
As you can see, the water is well above street level. What you can’t see is the rubbish and God knows what else that is swirling around in the water. The smell isn’t too pretty either.
Must be time to invest in some Princess gumboots!
