The GOJEK driver resting in the tree shade near Gambir station struck a pose

I was walking down East Merdeka Square Street. This is a big street that runs east of Merdeka Square and Gambir station in Jakarta. On the Merdeka Square side, the railroad tracks extend along the road, there are no buildings or houses, and the fence stretches.

There was a bus stop as I proceeded toward the Istiqlal Mosque, and a large bus stop was set up on the side of the road. The sidewalk led to the back of that bus stop. A few locals were relaxing there. The place was in the shade and there was also a place to sit down for a bit of rest. The man in this photo was also relaxing under the street tree.

When I spotted the camera, the man stretched out his index finger and looked at my camera with a keen eye. The green jumper he was wearing had a round logo on the left chest. The man seemed to be a GOJEK driver. I thought he might be resting in the shade along the main road until the order was placed. In front of the man, there were several plastic juice bottles and snack bags. Selling snacks on the side of the road while waiting for the order seemed to be also his job. He was doing both of them at the same time. It's the same in every country that no rest for the wicked.
