Arrival in Indonesia / photo by Yam

Left Singapore and here I am in Indonesia.
Language is major problem for me, as most people do not speak English. It seems there are a lot of similarity in Malay and in Tagalog, but unfortunately neither do I speak. I guess my first task is to speak the language ASAP.
The city has many faces, some places being unorganized as a slum, and some being filled with beautiful architectures and modern shopping malls. Many buildings from the Dutch colonial era are left as it was back in those days, most being abandoned due to the lack of maintenance.
So far, as a tourist (not as an expat, since I have not started working yet), this city is filled with stimulation and I can say that it is an excellent place to stay for any photo lovers.
