Skywatch Friday - Monas Monument, Jakarta

Happy Friday!!

This week's skywatch photo is from my home (for the past 12 years) in Jakarta. This monument is called Monas, but locals call it "Sukarno's Erection". Sukarno was the first President of Indonesia after independence from the Dutch in 1945...

Have fun visiting blogs from around the world featuring skies in every corner of the globe...CLICK HERE
Please forgive me if I don't visit your blog, however...I am having serious internet problems again!!
