I was walking on a relatively wide road that allowed cars to pass. Occasionally, cars and bajajs would pass me. Low-rise houses lined the sides of the road. This was in a commonplace residential area in the Taman Sari district of Jakarta. The buildings along the road were densely packed, sometimes there are gaps between buildings where people can pass.
The narrow alleyway in this photo is such an alley that extended between buildings. There was a stall at the exit of the alley, and the shopkeeper of the stall was resting a little way down the alley. It was hot, no customers were coming in, and she seemed to be lounging a bit on a bench.
Although I became curious about the exhausted shopkeeper, I was attracted by the destination of the lane. A little farther back, there was a motorbike parked there, and it was mind-boggling that I couldn't see beyond it. It looked like it's leading somewhere, and it looked like it's a dead end there. Unless I stepped into the alley, I couldn't tell which was the right way to go.
