Bajaj Waiting For Customers On The Bridge

Two Bajaj were waiting for customers on a bridge over a stream that runs through a residential area of Jakarta

The creek that ran through the residential area of Jakarta was so well protected that it looked like it could be turned into a culvert any day now if a lid was put on. In the city of Tokyo, the streams that once flowed here and there are now only culverts as a result of carefully covering them one by one. Many of the roads in Tokyo that meander unnaturally to the right and left were once rivers. They are said to have been turned into culverts during the high growth period in order to build a sewerage system.

Fortunately or unfortunately, the rivers and waterways in Jakarta's residential areas have never been culverted and are still flowing under the blue sky. The sewerage system is already in place because I didn't smell them, so it seems that no domestic wastewater flows into these streams.

There are bridges over such a creek in places. Two Bajaj were parked on the bridge, waiting for customers. In ancient and modern times, bridges have been associated with the idea of connecting the world we are in and another world. The two Bajajs may have been waiting for guests on the bridge so that they could move freely between the two worlds.
