The first week in Jakarta has come to an end and there are so many new impressions. Jakarta has around 20 million inhabitant and the infrastructure is not quite adapted for that amount of people. This leads to a lot of people at the same place at the same time relative to what we are used to in Sweden, and especially a lot more traffic. However, Oriflame has arranged for us to live near the office, so we have a short walking distance to the office every morning, and can avoid the heavy traffic.
I and Filippa have received three different projects that we are going to work with during our time here. We will work with them together and coordinate the tasks in between us to reach the goals and I think we will make an excellent team!
The first weekend was spent in Bali, the paradise Island just 1.5h by airplane from Jakarta. We left Jakarta after work Friday evening, and came back to Jakarta Sunday evening - it was the perfect getaway from the large city. Bali is very beautiful and exotic, and our colleague Rambo was the perfect guide and host, showing us several beautiful spots around the island.
