Annual flooding in Jakarta


Once again, and despite government efforts to alleviate the problem, heavy rains in the capital and its outlying areas have caused the first major flood of the rainy season. Large parts of the capital were under water, with more downpours expected as the rainy season is expected to hit its peak. (EPA and AFP)

Lifetime journalist, author, magazine editor and publisher, now semi-retired and traveling the world. My plan, after living in Costa Rica for 14 months, was to visit a new country in southern Europe every three months to experience the culture and the challenge of adapting to a new environment, while on a fixed income. That plan was sidetracked when I was offered a job in Indonesia, providing an opportunity to explore Asia. Indonesia lasted for a 4 wonderful years but I have now moved on to Hua Hin, Thailand.
