Sunset on the Goat Bridge

Entering a Mosque

This past week I went on a walking tour of five Mosque in the Pekojan section of old Jakarta. Pekojan was the area for Muslims during the Dutch Administartion. Pekojan comes from the word Koja which means trader in Bahasa, Indonesian.

It was amazing. I was actually able to go into the Mosques and look around….being utmost respectful. I was the only Bule (white) within a mile. This was the 1st time I have entered a Mosque. And to my surprise worshipers wash off before they pray….very cool…. Anyway, enjoy the pics…..

Look like some Old Town in the Wild West!
