I'm Taylor. I was born on Okinawa and raised in the US and Europe, and I stopped counting how many times I've moved many years ago. I'm more of a transient resident than a traveller with a home base, currently in Jakarta, Indonesia. I'll have more time to look around in a few months - very busy at the moment.
The photo on the left pretty much sums up my experience of Jakarta so far. It's a brightly-lit, ritzy mall. Sorry, a "mixed-use construction" - the towers are flats, there's a grocery store in the basement, an ice skating rink and a movie theater upstairs, and even prayer rooms. You can live, work, and shop without ever leaving the building. In theory, this isn't a terrible idea, but as someone who loves being outside it's horrifying. (Fortunately, I live in an older, residential area - pictures of that to come.)
Hunh. I just realized all the photos on this page are of buildings, with no people visible. Will have to fix that.
