On one Saturday, I finally managed to haul me ass to Monas again. My target was to pay a visit to holy places nearby. One is the Istiqlal Mosque and the other is Cathedral a church. It was the lazy me that tempted the adventurous me not to go out. And here I am.
As the bus was passing Bank Indonesia, there was a demonstration going on. It was really a large group. First saw it, I was scared. After a few seconds, it look safe because they look peaceful. From the next day newspaper, the march into Monas was related to closing of church. I got out from Monas busway station. It was quite a walk before I get to take a photo. There is a palace opposite one of the entrance to Monas. As I was about to cross the road to get closer, I saw a guard in a cemented hut. He was there not moving for quite sometime. Hmm.. it should be okay if I just got a little closer to have a better view. As I started to cross, corner of my eyes I saw something moving. I froze on the spot. I was shocked to see an army with an automatic weapon. So I gave up the idea of crossing the first half of the road for better photography. Don't want to get myself into a messy situation. There and then I took this photo. As I walked along the palace I seen more army standing near the trees, camouflaging themselves to the trees.
From far I saw a big building. There was no army along this building. So then I dared myself to cross the road to this building. Is Makamah Agung, a court house.
