I had planned a solo trip to the famous Bogor Botanical Gardens on the weekend, but there was quite a lot of interest in the office, so six of us hired a minibus and temporarily escaped inner-city Jakarta for the nearby town of Bogor and the surrounding countryside.
We left early and had such a good run with the generally notorious Jakarta traffic that we had some time to kill before the gardens opened. It was great fun to have a wander through the chaos of Bogor's market.
