Nostalgia...Jakarta (1999 - 2004)

Jln Taman Metro Alam 1...Pondok Indah, Jakarta Selatan, our residence
from 2000 until we left Jakarta, early 2004

Those were the my post today I wish to bring back some of our memorable and beautiful moments of the good old days we spent while in Jakarta for well over four years. Arriving in the capital city at the end of the millenium (December 1999) straight from Amman, Jordan, coincided with the last week of Ramadan, we were temporarily accommodated at the Ascot Hotel Apartment, near the main thoroughfare of Jalan Jenderal Sudirman. Spent our first Eid-l-Fitr at the hotel, hosted our first 'open house' at the same hotel...and did our first shopping at the nearby Plaza Indonesia. The rest of the story can be followed from the following pictures...and InsyaAllah more to come as they become available.
