I am an engineer, member of the Botanical society of Indonesia. My house is is 60 years old and was built for the director of the Botanical Garden Indonesia Government, and given to Prof. Ir. Dr. Soetomo, my dad, Director and founder of Indonesian Institute of Science (Indonesian: Lembaga Ilmu Pengetahuan Indonesia or LIPI). The name Soetomo was given to a family of orchids (Luisanda Soetomo Soerohaldoko)
Nature is my element, I have been more than 100 times (alone and with guests) to the waterfalls in mountain Salak. I know our history, flora and fauna as a scientist, not only a tour guide. I would describe myself as quiet, easy going, hospitable, non intrusive, creative, broad minded. I speak good English, and have good people skills. I have entertained guests from USA, Europe, Australia, Asia, and many students in programs for master and doctor's degree of philosophy, authorized by the Ministry of Research and Technology of Indonesia, Indonesian Institute of Science, Univercity of Agriculture Institute Pertanian Bogor, IPB)
If you don't want to stay in the busy Jakarta, take the bus from the airport.
There's a direct DAMRI airport bus to Bogor. You'll probably arrive at Terminal 2. Exit the terminal and walk around 300 meters to your left to get to DAMRI Terminal. Just follow the sign or ask. The DAMRI buses arrive and leave all the time. Look for the one which has a sign in the front window saying BOGOR. The helpers on the platform will readily indicate the right one to you as well. There will be one about every 30 minutes. Taxi drivers will offer their services too : ) You can pay for the bus at a kiosk on the platform while waiting or on the bus - no problem. The fare is Rp. 40,000. In Bogor, the bus will terminate at Botani Square Mall, which is in the centre. It doesn't stop at Bogor station. You can buy the ticket in the bus, or at the counter in DAMRI terminal. If you pay in the bus, pay to the officer that will collect the fare to each passenger, don't pay to the driver. The trip usually takes 2h but in reality it will depend on the traffic.
