Daddy caught up on his sleep and we all had a leisurely breakfast. He still had to go to the hospital for morning rounds but came back around lunch time. After a short nap, we went to Taman Mini.
According to Wikipedia, Taman Mini Indonesia Indah or "Beautiful Indonesia Miniature Park" is a culture-based recreational area located in East Jakarta, Indonesia. It has an area of about 250 acres.
If you have limited time to stay in Indonesia, a visit to Taman Mini is best. It should give you an idea of the whole country, its customs and traditions.
We got there around 2:00 pm and the place was packed. Getting near the entrance to the park almost took an hour. We walked from the entrance. Since we had limited time and lines were long, we opted to take the cable car ride around Taman Mini to see everything. We waited in line for 1 hour but it was worth it. We were able to choose what to do next which was to go on the boat ride on Indonesian Archipelago lake. That was another 30 minute wait for out turn.

After the boat ride it was already late afternoon and we decided to head back to our hotel. It was already jammed getting out of the park so we walked through the back entrance where we got a ride to take us to the busway station. There we got an Uber.
