Between all the high glass offices , traffic jams , noise you will find the harbour , Sunda Kelapa , almost a quiet spot. Large wooden ships enter here to release their cargo. These ships look much older then they are... Decades ago they used to bring spices from the other islands to ship to Europe , mainly the Netherlands. Nowadays these ships contain wood. Tropical wood to make expensive furniture, teak , meranti The longshoremen used to receive a pice of string arround their arm everytime they walked up and down and where paid for their prestations equal to the amount of strings. That time is over..these days they make about 3-11euro , depending for who they work and the sort of cargo.
