The old name for the Indonesian capital is "Batavia"
The name was given to it by its colonial Dutch owners.
Much of the Dutch heritage and language can still be seen there..
The buildings, railway stations, etc etc..
Though it is not much of a place to visit..
But the seafood is delicious there!
Thanks to my pal, Rusli Wardjojo Maryono, whom brought me and my colleague around during our stay in Jakarta. Thanks for the fantastic dinners!!!
