Wow, what a city! Jakarta has about the same population as NYC. It was so fun to be with a group of people today brought together by the Indonesian version of Parenting Magazine (see details in on the Valuesparenting blog). We had so much fun with about 100 women and 6 men just learning from each other!
Afterward we hired a car from our wonderful hotel (Four Seasons) and drove to the furniture district. It was fun just to drive through the city and we found that the furniture we have is better than anything that we saw. We did find absolutely amazing furniture and sculptures created from giant roots from teak trees. Some of the roots were from trees that were a thousand years old! Here are some of our favorites (although I talked Dad out of buying any...more stuff)!
