The first trip to Jakarta #3 Heavy traffic

It goes without saying that heavy traffic in Jakarta is legendary.

I was secretly thinking it must not be that bad ... but actually it was worse than I thought! 
I am used to public transportation, trains and buses, because almost everyone here in Japan uses them.
No trains run in the city of Jakarta so many people drive cars or motorcycles.

Sometimes it takes us more than an hour to get to a place which is in our sight.

Like other tropical countries, they often have a sudden shower in the evening.
Motorcycle drivers go to the side of the road and change their clothes.
When the sky gets grey and the thunder groans, it makes sense.
It is too hot to wear a rain coat all the time while driving in Jakarta.
