The intersection near the hotel where I was staying in Jakarta seemed to be a place for three-wheeled cabs called Bajaj, and whenever I passed by, there were always several bajaj waiting for customers to come. There is no such thing as a pick-up service in Bajaj, so the drivers lie down in their vehicles or look at their phones and wait for customers, while Gojek and Grab actively go to where the customers are because of their systems. Bajaj is still the same old thing.

There was a table on the sidewalk right behind where Bajajs were parked, and the same man was always sitting on the chair. I don't know what the man was doing there. Perhaps he was the master of several Bajaj drivers parked nearby. In any case, the man who always sat in the same spot seemed to have learned the faces of a foreign tourist who passed in front of him several times a day. Eventually, they began to exchange greetings as they passed by, and before I knew it, he was happily making a peace sign at the camera pointed at him.
