If you think getting stuck in a three-hour traffic jam in Bangkok is bad, try spending 45min in the steaming Jakarta traffic trying to crawl all of 3km.
It’s been 10 days since the TODAY team landed in Jakarta for the 26th SEA Games, and it’s been a rollercoaster ride – at the standard city speed of 5km/hr – for us here in one of the region’s busiest cities.
Poor internet connectivity, lack of information, and transportation issues have been a bugbear for many of the foreign media gathered here to cover the Games. But once in a while, a good bowl of bakso mie or a trip out to the wilderness for canoeing helps the journey along.
Here’re some photos from our adventure so far.
