I was walking down a busy street in Jakarta. A lot of cars were running and noisy. But the noisiness is like Southeast Asia. And that noisiness is also a sign of activity.
As I walked along the sidewalk, I saw a man peddling on a platform at the edge. There were many glass bottles on the platform, and each bottle was filled with a green liquid. It was a bright green color, like the blood of an alien in a science fiction story. This was probably diesel fuel. In other words, this man is selling diesel oil in glass bottles on the street. The boiling point of diesel oil is said to be in the range of 180 to 350 degrees Celsius, so it would not spontaneously combust even in a very hot Indonesian city. However, I felt something dangerous.
Looking closely, I saw various advertisements on the side of the platform. 'TAMBEL BAN' refers to tire repair, and 'PERTALITE' is the standard for gasoline. I heard that gasoline with an octane rating of 90 or higher is called PERTALITE in Indonesia. He was selling gasoline and repairing tires at the side of the road where there was a lot of traffic.
