Y'know, I thought this blog was getting depressing, so I'd better talk about my life instead. Last December and January our families came from  Sulawesi and I took them around sight seeing. I always forget that my in my city there's a tourist attraction, The Bogor Botanical Garden, tourist and scholars from around the world come here to enjoy or to study the plants growing in the garden since Dutch Occupation. Here are some of the pictures I took while being a guide for my family.

Giant Lotus leaves in the pond...several ponds, in fact.
The flowers are so lovely, as you can see from my first photograph.

The Bogor [Presidential] Palace is in the garden complex, but closed off from the public. More securities in place now, as Mr Jokowi, our President, has made Bogor Palace his office, preferring Bogor Palace to Merdeka Palace in Jakarta. He has been seen shaking hands with visitors of the Botanical Garden, from the back of the Palace.
