Jakarta Floods

You might have seen it already on TV or on the front page of newspapers. This years’ floods in Jakarta were extraordinary. More than 80 people lost their lives, and almost half a million lost their homes.

As mentioned in my description of the Burns Supper, our friends Walter and Liz Casha were flooded too. They had to swim out of their house and housing compound. I enclose herewith some photos which Liz had sent me. Beware of the water!
