In my hometown, Jakarta, it is so hard to find place to play outside. Usually as a child, I played at school's field or played at my friend's house. But I never played outside alone, my parents never allowed me to play on the street by myself. It's too dangerous for a child to play outside alone.

But twice a year, during school holiday, my family and me always visited my grandmother in Jogjakarta - a small city around 400 km from Jakarta (around 10 hours by train). Unlike Jakarta, Jogjakarta is a small city, they even still use rickshaw and bicycle as their main transportation. So when we were there my brother and me always played outside. We played at the waterfall near my grandma's place, played with wild monkeys at the backside of the house, chasing dragonflies on the rice field, and much more!
