Wandering around the city of Jakarta, I came across a river. It was a tightly-banked river that runs through the town. When it rains, this small river may be likely to overflow. The concrete wall like a seawall was built on both banks.
I like the open sky when the river is flowing, but there is one problem. The problem is that it is possible to cross the river without a bridge. I couldn't find a bridge to cross the river here either, so I walked along the river for a while.
Finally, I found a bridge that was made of concrete, just like the riverbank. The small bridge was only wide enough for people to pass each other and it led straight to the other side of the river. As I started to cross it, a schoolgirl came walking over at the same time.
Indonesia is a Muslim-majority country, and this schoolgirl seemed to be a Muslim as well. Under the hot sun, she was wearing a hijab. It's hard for me to distinguish, but there are many ways to wrap the hijab. It's also said to go out of fashion, so it is possible to tell which region the person is from by the way it's wrapped. Since girls around that age are sensitive to fashion, the girl in this photo may have been wearing it in a stylish way.
