LOL in Kota Tua with local Students

The Old Town of Jakarta once was called Batavia. Nowadays it is calles Kota Tua and it is one of those rare places in Jakarta where all cars are banned. That helped.

Jakartans wind out here with friends and family on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Kids cycling around on colourfull bikes, while dozens of people take selfies with the facades of beautiful architecture in the background like the former townhall, Wayang museum, Kantor Pos and Batavia cafe. Living statues, tattoo painters and musicians show their arts on the main square and surrounding streets.

This weekend I wanted to vlog about the old town and tell about the history of some of the buildings, but due to curious students it became a whole different and muck more contemporary story…
