I was walking through the residential area of the Glodok, Jakarta. Many people say that Glodok is a Chinatown. But not everything in this area seems to be Chinatown. The area I was walking around didn't have a Chinatown feel to it. It was just a residential area.
The long and narrow streets were lined with low-rise houses on both sides. And here and there, something like a general store for the locals had opened a shop. The small shop in this photo was one of those in the residential area.
It had a bench outside of the shop and had a stove inside. And there were household items hanging from the ceiling. It looked like a general store with serving snacks.
When I came here, a man was sitting on the bench. While the man had a glass cup in his hand, he was relaxing with a cup of coffee.
People in Jakarta are not unusual for foreigners, or they are not interested in strangers, or they are shy. I don't know which is right. I didn't become attention-getting even though I walked around in a place where there were not many tourists. I rarely got approached by the locals when I passed by a place where they were lounging around. This man didn't tell me to have a cup of coffee when he saw me either.
