Life in the Villa

After spending some time in Kelapa Gading, the district of Jakarta laden with asphalt that we call home, being surrounded by greenery and life is a refreshing change.  Jakarta does have its pros, but when the living things outside of the gardens are stray cats, rats a size the cats are afraid of, and Joey our hamster, we forget during our stretches in the city that Indonesia is one of the most biodiverse places on the planet. The Kelapa Gading experience allows us a greater appreciation of even the smallest of life here in our villa. I chose not to photograph the small flock of fruit flies on our bananas in the kitchen.
