Our flight landed at 1am in Jakarta. It sounds like a terrible time to land but arriving from the USA, which is located nearly on the opposite side of the planet, we were more tired from traveling than from sleepiness.
An airport shuttle picked us up. For whatever reason, traffic was terrible!
Just stepping outside the airport, we were already learning a lot about this new culture. Motorcycles are way more common in Indonesia than in the USA and even if there are 4 drawn lanes on the highway, nothing stops motorists from creating 5.
