Last week I visited this old Kampong in Jakarta.
Walking along the uneven paths around the Kampong, it is easy to forget that you are actually in Jakarta.
There are many children running around and playing near the old port area ..... these families are very poor.
There are about 5000 people living here at Luar Batang, which is the old village beside Pasar Ikan (Fish Market)
I have no idea where Pasar Ikan ends and Luar Batang begins, I guess nobody does except maybe the post man. and then I would imagine he would be lost as well.
am gradually uploading images to flickr, so here are the first few:
