Comfortable life in a big green city

Indonesia

Hi, I'm Rini. I live in Jakarta, the capital city of Indonesia. Just like other big cities in other countries, Jakarta is also full of highly contrasting sceneries. You can see many luxurious cars on the street while at the same time poor kids are begging for foods. Pollution is what we breathe everyday. The amount of vehicles is increasing whereas the roads are getting narrower due to the increase of shopping center constructions. If only there were more trees, Jakarta would be more comfortable.
