Backstreets of Jakarta

Yesterday I brought the camera going through Pejaten and Kemang in the south of Jakarta. These small backstreets are only minutes away from the busy main roads, but still they feel like a different world. I almost forget about the crowded streets and imagine myself in a village — the laundry hanging out to dry, the small shop with the living quarters on the second floor, the mangoes ripening in the trees, the school girl walking home, the woman coming back from grocery shopping, the man selling food from his orange cart and of course the motorbikes — everywhere the motorbikes.
