Photographer's Note

Yesterday, Francis said me: it's so nice in Bali, what am I doing in Tokyo...
Today, I want to show you another face of Indonesia, this one i shot, but don't usually show in TE.
You remember theese picture I posted of all wooden boats in the old harbour of jakarta;
you can look at them all along the day without boring a minute
sometimes tourists in rented car come to make some pictures and leave,
but if you want more, you can go to the fish market, and behind the fish market, if you really want,
if you are not scared to see real life,
you can discover children like this one, playing with a hammer in a boat,
before you have to go in dark ways, smelling bad, cross water on tight floating wooden footbridges,
here is the fishermen area
I could say the garbage area
here live families in this garbage world, they add themselves garbage, just going out of the "house" and droping a new garbage bag in water, one more among centains
I saw polyomelitic adolescents, mothers searching louses in their children hair...

It's not easy to go on, but here also I met some joyfull children, welcoming mothers...

We are in Jakarta, 10mns walking from here, is the moderngeant commercial area with all what you want...if you have money!

PLEASE, GO TO THE WS TO SEE A VIEW OF THE AREA§
