Life Through The Lens – Part II – December 12 Image


The traffic jams in Jakarta are apparently quite famous!  I can see why after spending just over an hour this evening trying to get about 2 kilometers! This morning while stuck in traffic I saw this fellow standing out in traffic selling newspapers. It is pretty common on many of the city streets to see just about everything being sold! This reminds me of Mexico City. Although there are very stark differences between Mexico City and Jakarta. The roads in Mexico City are falling apart while in Jakarta seem to be very well maintained. As well there is very little graffiti compared to Mexico City and very little garbage strewn about.
