      Thanks for the links,TravelingChez. The blued in flood areas on the map must only be the worst places. I see that our area Pasar Rebo is not included in the flooded neighborhoods and our house is high and dry, but a few hundred meters down the hill our PakRT's place and two or three dozen others are flooded out with a meter or more of dirty water in the house. I suspect that Kelapa Gading, Kayu Putih and many others also have distressed areas even though they are also "white" on the map. Take care everyone who has to travel.

          Never found reptiles after flooding before, but I did find some white enoki-like mushrooms growing in the wardrobe during the big flood of 1996. I still wonder if they were edible...

          In other flood-related news, I have three wedding invites tomorrow, two of which are now postponed because of the floods. As someone who's planning a wedding, I can't help but feel like they should know better than to set a wedding date during the rainy season in Jakarta. So much for "hari bagus"! *cackles*

            Should avoid ceremonies every five years or so during the rainy season (2002 / 2007 / 2012-13)

              Good lord did thursday went to shit... I got stuck in Kelapa Gading on my way to work. Once the water got halfway up my bumper, I parked in a mall and waited for it to subside...but it didn't.

              Had to walk home from Kelapa Gading to Cawang and left the car in the mall for a couple of days.

              Hope you folks had a better time than I did!

                        I'd take a salary cut and move out of Java altogether. One reason for flooding is that, with non-existent planning and enforcement, the weight of crushing population density really makes itself felt. I know many former-Jakartans who have left for Bali, and are much the happier and better for it.

                          No problem. Thanks for the concern. Can't do much about the damaged walls (my walls are made out of gympsum/sheetrock). However, at least I managed to rescue the important stuff like my KITAS, important documents...and my wine collection lol.

                              I shouldn't have made it sound so expensive..I mean, I have only a few bottles....not necessarily the best brands, but they are more drinkable than the acidic Hatten Red. and when i said a 'collection' i meant...I have five bottles...three of them brought from back home in the US...which will take a whooole lot more than just doing sheetrocks for me to open those.

                              but...I will open one or two of them..to be shared among friends while we all brainstorm how to avoid this kind of flood in 2019.

                                Sounds like a good plan, but the next water problem could come as soon as the next rainy season. Another thought: this season is far from over. Take you time with the repairs.
