Chador In Jakarta Kota Station

The woman wearing a Chador fiddled her smartphone in Jakarta Kota Railway Station

Shot at Jakarta Kota Railway Station in Jakarta, Indonesia.

With the largest number of islands in the world, Indonesia is also the country with the largest number of Muslims in the world. The number is 202 million. Approximately 75 percent of the population of Indonesia is Muslim. Even here in Jakarta, most of the women walking around the street are Muslim and have their hair covered. I'm afraid that if I cover my hair in a humid place, I'm going to feel steamed, but that's probably an extra worry.

I stepped inside the Jakarta Kota Railway Station in Jakarta. Perhaps because there were no long-distance trains, there are not many things that make you feel like traveling. Alternatively, there were Starbucks and Kentucky Fried Chicken, not something you had to travel all the way to the southern hemisphere to see. The only thing that made me feel like I was traveling in this place, it was a woman in a chador.

A woman with a black chador covering her entire body was leaning against a pillar and looking at her smartphone. A chador is a Muslim outfit that shows only its face and hides its entire body. Looking closer at the woman, she was wearing a pair of blue sneakers. So I thought she wore colorful outfits under the chador.
