I took these photos on a Sunday morning, the day after a very heavy downpour that hit Jakarta. It rained very heavily and for a few hours. The lower parts of the city, like this kampung (urban village) in the Kemang area got flooded. It does get flooded at every strong rain, but the one that hit Jakarta a couple of weekends ago was particularly strong. The day after I found people who were tired after a long night spent drying the lower floors of the their houses and rescuing furnitures. I talked with them about the challenge of living with frequent flooding in this area and how things have changed little during the last few years.
