As Jakarta mourns for Soeharto's loss –both perfunctorily and wholeheartedly—one couldn’t help but feeling that the ambience of sorrow is everywhere with all the half-mast flags being displayed. Here are a couple of pictures I’ve taken during my ride from home to pick up my primaryschooler sister in the Blok M district of South Jakarta…
First of all, my own next-door neighbour….
Another two neighbours..
Police station 15 minutes away from my home.
This is my sister’s school campus, which was located 500 m away from the Pertamina hospital where the late president was admitted..
A church close to the campus..
And a foundation building nearby (nice one here!)
The Barito bird market, a mere 100 m away from the Pertamina hospital..
This last picture I took shows how the heavens join the mood with the drizzle in the background (taken in front of EF Pamulang)…
