The shopping street I was walking through, Pasar Baru in Jakarta, was coming to an end. At the end of the street, a large shopping mall was built and stalls lined both sides of the street. It was bustling.
Along with the stalls selling clothing, there were also several stalls selling food. The market and food are inseparable in any country. There are always eating places attached to the market. I guess everyone gets hungry when they shop. It is the same here in Indonesia. Many people were sitting down on the side of the road to eat.
There was a young man among them. He was sitting at the side of the road where many other people were munching away, looking bored and unsure of his perspective. He seemed to be out of his mind.
I couldn't tell if the young man was tired of shopping or if he was just trying to figure out what to buy. Maybe he was just tired of shopping for his girlfriend, who was having a hard time deciding. That was something I had to ask to find out. The only thing I'm sure of was that this man gazed into space.
