Fourth Dimension of Old Town

on Mon, 12/22/2014 - 09:49

A city does not only have three dimensions. It also has the fourth dimension: time. Time is translated into history in which the theater of life is played in different period, rich of climaxes. We cannot touch the fourth dimension of a city, we can only feel it. The fourth dimension haunts our remembrance,   exist in our collective memory.  In the fourth dimension we feel the present of the past life of Batavian when we visit the old Jakarta. The memory of Batavia lives in the recollection of those who can understand the deepest meaning of mankind!

Saya bukan orang Jakarta, tapi menyambut baik dengan adanya website klikbatavia yang menyoroti kota lama Jakarta. Tentu saja apa yang dirajut untuk kota tua Jakarta akan ditiru oleh kota-kota lain di Indonesia. Melalui klikbatavia saya harapkan pengelolaan kota tua dapat lebih baik Ingat pantun ini:

Jalan-jalan di Kota Tua

Jangan lupa beli sepatu

Kalau ingin bahagia

Jangan lupa tempo dulu
