That saturday morning, me and my friends left Jakarta to Bogor by train (commuter line). We arrived at Bogor Botanic Garden around 09 AM. The first thing that we did was looking for Mexican Garden..!

As you see.. Bogor Botanic Garden is very huge! we don't bring bycicle so we have to walk to find it. (yes.. we can bring bike but we must pay more for the bike.. check this to see the ticket price for the bike).

Mexican Garden is not far from the entrance. We just need to follow the sign. I said a big O for this garden. Mexican Garden is very beautifulll.. There are so many cactus in giant size with many kind of shape..  These cactus stand on white sand which filled by rock. I heard that these cactus were imported directly from Mexican!.. ^^
