It’s fairly quiet here with Ramadan – the Muslim month of fasting, which ends with Idul Fitri on Sunday/Monday. Muslims fast from sunup to sundown, then everyone goes out to eat at sundown, so the restaurants are packed every evening during Ramadan. The week after Idul Fitri (next week) all of Indonesia shuts down – even the banks are closed for the entire week. People typically travel to their home town so travel out of Jakarta is a nightmare and expensive, but the good part is supposedly Jakarta becomes a ghost town because no one is actually from here, so everyone goes somewhere else. I’ll believe that when I see it, but it’s already getting a little hard to find a taxi.
