Indonesian President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo, second left, have a selfie taken by Indonesian actor Reza Rahadian, left, as they ride on a Jakarta Mass Rapid Transit train during the inauguration ceremony of the subway line in Jakarta, Indonesia, Sunday, March 24, 2019. The 16-kilometer (10-mile) line system running south from Jakarta's downtown is the first phase of a development that if fully realized will plant a cross-shaped network of stations on the teeming city of 30 million people.
