To market, to market

One of my favorite things to do when I come back to Indonesia is walk around on the streets. This street is literally “Big Market Street” – perfect. There are a lot of details, a lot of visuals to soak up. This particular part of the street is in the textile neighborhood, where 80% of the entire street is textile shops and shops that sell items related to sewing and whatnot. I went to get some canvas to cover my windows but then just got distracted by all the happenings going on around me.

Note to self: traffic laws don’t really exist in Indonesia. Pedestrian crossing especially does not exist.

I take that for granted. I almost died crossing this street. Apparently a woman with a camera trying to cross the road is code for “go faster” to cars and motorcycles. Who knew?

    Soon, we’ll go on those streets together… I’ll protect you from those crazy drivers.
