Man Carrying Polyethylene Tanks

The man was carrying a lot of polyethylene tanks on a cart

A man was walking around Jakarta pushing a cart in the city. It was a long and narrow cart of a rare shape. There were a number of polythene tanks on it. It looked like a special cart that can carry many polyethylene tanks.

The tanks were large enough to hold kerosene, the same kind of oil used in Japan. According to my research, there is a standard for polyethylene tanks as well. In Japan, they are regulated by JIS and internationally, there is a standard recommended by the United Nations.

It is said that the tanks which cleared the standard of the United Nations' recommendation are labeled with UN. I have seen many cars and trucks with a big UN logo on their bodies in the Syrian Golan Heights, but I have never seen a polyethylene tank with a UN logo yet. Am I just too distracted to pay attention?

I don't know what the polyethylene tank the man was carrying was for. Whatever it was, it must have been heavy to carry so much liquid in so many polytanks, but the man was laughing and carrying it lightly.

As it should be, if you look closely, you could see that the lids of all the polytanks were empty. All the tanks seemed to be empty inside.
