This place is known as Old Jakarta or Old Batavia.

We found a large field that is surrounded by many old buildings and we saw many people in that area. They were doing many activities for example cycling, walking around, playing with their children, and many others. Before we enter the field, we decided to eat something in this place. We were looking for a canteen or food stall near the place. Finally, we found some food stalls which sold many varieties of food. There were Soto, fried rice, fried foods, and other Indonesian foods. I ate a bowl of Soto and a glass of ice tea, Faozan did either. After eating those foods, we took a stroll at the field. We saw some statue-like people. The statues are some people that wear traditional soldierly uniform and their bodies are painted with special paint. I don’t know about the special paint. They did not move as though they were real statues. They looked nice. If we want to donate some money to them, maybe we can take a photo with them.
