Cat Has Known Right Away

The cat relaxing in front of an eating place looked back with suspicious eyes

I was walking in the Sawah Besar district of Jakarta. I was walking along Pasar Baru Street, a historic shopping street, but I didn't enjoy walking in the well-developed shopping street. So I went into a side street from Pasar Baru Street. The alleyway led deeper than I expected. As I walked along, wondering how far it would go, I found myself passing through a dimly lit tunnel and seeing the sky above me. Yet the alleyway still stretched on.

The tunnel-like area was lined with food stalls, but at the end of the tunnel, there was a row of neatly set up eating places. They had a shop, though they just put up a board fence with benches and tables inside.

All of the diners that weren't at mealtime were deserted. But there were probably a lot of people nearby who fed cats. Instead of people, there were cats relaxing here and there. The cat in this photo was one of them.

The cat turned around and gave me a quizzical look. It looked at the unfamiliar face and seemed to be pondering who I was. I felt like a local in a deserted alleyway, but the local cats must have known right away that I wasn't a local.
