The horse near Fatahillah Square looked like it was enduring a day that wasn't going well

On the way to Fatahillah Square, there were many vendors. They were selling food, souvenirs, and other tourist attractions, but they were never overly dramatic. Everyone was working in a calm manner. Even when I walked by with my camera, they did not pester me. It seems that the people doing business on the streets of Jakarta are not greedy.

The horse-drawn carriages waiting for customers on the roadways are also decorated and give off a tourist-like atmosphere, but the gentlemen don't react to my appearance in the same way as the people doing business on the sidewalks. Even when I pointed my camera at the horse, he did not react.

Then again, the horse did not react to my camera. Perhaps he was resigned to the fact that he had to ride with people day in and day out, or perhaps he was fed up with people, but the way he kept his gaze fixed straight ahead, it looked as if he was enduring the unsuccessful days.
