[Photos] Flood in Jakarta (Otista and Kampung Melayu)

0

So I arrived at the office very late today. It took 3,5 hours to get me from my house to the office, from 6.30AM to 10.00AM using a motorcycle.

But how? Well, traffic jam in Kampung Melayu and Otista because the road cannot be accessed by any type of car or motorcycle, so there were a lot of people who have to stop, think, and find an alternative way. I was detoured by the police, ended up going back to the way home, and stuck in Cawang for some hellish traffic jam.

Here are the photos I took this morning, and it seems that the flood is getting higher.

I didn’t take many photos, but I hope that it gives you the image of the area. Be careful on your way, and stay away from the flood. Clean your bike if you have to go through the flood, because it might leave rust to some parts of your motorcycle. Enjoy and Ride Safely!
