At the Peak

It has been a while since I last went to the mountains in West Java which are more commonly known as ‘Puncak’ or the Peak in Indonesian. It was refreshing and I have to admit, the fact that the trip was far from traffic jam made it more enjoyable.

It was rare to be able to go to Puncak on weekends and did not have to cope with the ever growing traffic jam. The last time I went there, it took me 4 hours to get to the Gadog traffic light. Last weekend, it took me around 30 minutes or so. I wish it could stay like that.

It was because we are entering the month of Ramadan where my Muslim friends are fasting. Perhaps because it is only the first week of fasting people didn’t want to get caught in a traffic jam and chose instead to stay at home. I guess a lot of people thought so, because there are hardly any traffic jams along the road.

Well, I don’t know if it will stay like this next weekend, but I am glad that at least I am able to enjoy my trip to Puncak, because it was worth it.
