I was walking on the second floor of the Kanoman market in Cirebon, which is a big building, and as expected, it was quiet on the second floor of a building where there are not many stores except for those facing the main street. There were some workshops with sewing machines inside, but basically, no one was in the stores and no shoppers were around. Even the sewing machines in the workshop remained quiet.
As I walked through the market, which was as quiet as an abandoned building, I came to a room that looked like a management office. I wondered if it was the office that managed the entire market. On the wall, the data of this market was written in large letters. There was a man sleeping on a sofa underneath the data.
The morning of this market starts early, at 6:30. I guess that's why. When I wandered around the market in the afternoon, I saw people sleeping here and there, just like this man. They seem to have finished their work early in the morning and are tired by midday. And it's not only men who are sleeping. There are also women sleeping around. In a sense, the sexes are equal here, and I guess it is natural for women to work just as hard as men and take a nap when they are tired.
