Peddlers In The Residential Area

Peddlers on the side of the road in a residential area peddling their wares with a carrying pole

The road was lined with houses on both sides of the road, and the road wound its way through them. This was a residential area in Jakarta. This road was too narrow for cars to pass. Motorcycles were parked in front of houses and I occasionally passed children. When I was advancing through such an alleyway, I saw two hawkers peddling their wares. In Jakarta's residential areas, there are also mobile food stalls and peddlers with a carrying pole.

I don't think it was the result of our discussion, but there were two vendors nearby who were setting down their poles to do business. I wondered if they wouldn't become business rivals, but that was not the case. Despite the fact that they were plying their trade in a similar location, the bustle was quite different. The peddler in the foreground was just sitting next to the carrying pole, and there was not a single customer in the vicinity. In contrast, the vendor in the back was surrounded by a crowd of people. Whether he knew it or not, the vendor in the front looked bored. It must have been uninteresting to see a busy person right next to him.
