Jakarta

Due to the wonders of Social Media, some of you may have noticed I was in Jakarta, Indonesia, last week.

I was working with a group of teachers on the development of assessment materials - all good stuff really, even if the language barrier was sometimes rather too high.

For most of the week I was indoors - and for much of the time I did manage to get outdoors there was a heavy haze of some sort in the air.  Both factors rather limit photography.

Here are three image that sum up my week!

Evening sky from my hotel window

Water Buffalo, north of Jakarta

Workshop participants - and some (almost) bald guy!

I like the city shot, the moodiness of the sky. I can't say I've ever seen water buffalo. Quite a large group for a workshop. You should have worn a stripe shirt then we could search for "Waldo." Here's a link if unfamiliar:
