I was sent to Jakarta for work, and it happened to fall on a long weekend so I planned an extended stay in Indonesia and invited friends to keep me company. I've been to Jakarta once before for a weekend trip. It's a big city. Spread out. Not walkable. Last time we spent a lot of time in taxis. I live in a big city. I come from a big city. Sometimes you wanna get away from it all.
After I was done with my work in Jakarta, we headed to Ciater at the base of a volcano for some fresh air and outdoor fun. So here's my list of things to do when in Indonesia:
Order everything on the menu.
Make your way through a giant market. And get several pairs of cheapy sunglasses.
Ride a horse through a tea plantation.
Take Jesus to a mosque.
Swim in a hot spring waterfall.
Soak in a hot tub time machine.
Late night soak in the hot spring waterfall.
Enjoy the wildlife.
Dip your feet in a pool of flesh eating fish!
Get some Robin Hood action
Shoot some guns.
Eat a banana covered in chocolate and cheese.
Get rained out and watch TLC in the bungalow of terror.
