Bananas Hung In The Lane

Bunches of bananas hung in the lane

Some bunches of bananas were hung from the eaves of the deserted fruit shop

As I walked down Pancoran Street in the Glodok district of Jakarta, the entrance to the alleyway opened its mouth as an invitation. When I find such an entrance, I will push on inside unless there is something very wrong with me. So I walked in without hesitation also this time.

The alleyway was lined with small shops that looked like a market. A shopper walked down a narrow alleyway. As I moved on among the shoppers, I saw a fruit store on my right. It wasn't a very lively shop, but there was hardly any fruit left on the stand anymore. It seems to have already sold out pretty well.

The goods were not on display and there was no sign of the people in the store. It was a very strange shop. Only a bunch of bananas hanging from the eaves wobbled lonely. Without the bunches of bananas, it was hard to judge that this was a fruit shop. Come to think of it, the bananas were not unsold, but perhaps they were hung to make a silent appeal that this place was a fruit store by hanging them like this.
