Independence Day 72th of Indonesia

Arus Lalu Lintas Jalan Merdeka

Indonesia celebrated 72th birthday on 17th of August 2017. Since it was national holiday, I decided to meet up with my long time friend. We haven't see each other since last June so yeah we both look forward for this holiday.

Our meeting point was a bit far from the center of the city, located somewhere in North Jakarta called Pantai Indah Kapuk. We both decided to meet each other there at Fresh Market. She would pick me up near the nearest busway station. I took a ride at station near my home around 09.30 AM and near station National Monument I got this surprise. 

I knew that busway station near National Monument also near the palace, where every year independence ceremony held. But, I never thought that busway also not allowed to pass the station during the ceremony being held. STUPID ME. So, I have to walk from Merdeka Fountain up to busway central station at Harmoni.

The good things for me, I can burn calories and take photos of all activities around the celebration. The ceremony still on going when I finally passed National Monument and Presidential Palace. Naturally, I didn't get the chance to see the president. 

Dream Catcher

There are so many people flocking around, try to get a better look at the ceremony. Most of the army and police standing by, a pity I also missed those policemen with horses. People also loves taking photos with statue for Asian Games next year. 

People also takes selfie pretending to ride police motorcycle. Sort of like a dream comes true or hopefully comes true for younger generation.

Not only around The Presidential Palace, people also visiting old town of Jakarta. I took the photo while on the way to Pantai Indah Kapuk. Celebration also took place in many areas, so it would be a bit hard for people to pass several roads because of it. 

My wishes for my dear country, may this country blessed by God always. Through thick and thin, may Indonesia survive many years to comes, overcomes differences and able to rise up as a great country. 

Happy birthday INDONESIA ^_^
