JAKARTA, INDONESIA - JUNE 16: An Indonesian woman poses for her friend on an old canon in front of the former Jakarta Governor's house in Kota Tua Sunday June 16, 2013 in Jakarta, Indonesia. Once known as the 'Queen of the East', Kota Tua, which means Old Town in Indonesian, is the original city of Jakarta built by the Dutch in the 16th century and called Batavia at that time. Currently, Kota Tua's beautiful Colonial architecture is in ruins, abandoned as the city edged farther south over the years. Jakarta's Governor, Joko Widodo, hopes to make it a priority to restore the old town and develop it into a high end tourist destination.. (Photo by Ed Wray/Getty Images)
