The driver was sleeping in his Bajaj parked near the station

If I was in Japan, I would be criticized for taking a nap during work, but it's not so rare to see people sleeping during work when I travel in Asian countries.

When I traveled in China, I thought the people working there must be tough because the food stalls were open from early in the morning until late at night. However, it's not true, many of them sleep in the daytime to make up for the hours of sleep. Such a situation seems to be the same in Jakarta, and when I walked around the city, I often saw people working at a food stall and taxi drivers sleeping by the roadside. I guess they don't have the idea to give their all to their work when they are working. If a customer comes, they work, and if not, they take it easy.

The driver of Bajaj, which was parked near Sawah Besar station, was also sleeping inside his vehicle. The fact that he was sleeping did not prevent customers from coming. He was asleep, with his back to the window, appealing to pedestrians that the driver was inside. I supposed he was prepared to start the engine and depart as soon as the guests came.
