I was standing on a fairly busy street that stretched into a residential area. Cars and bajajs were passing by, motorcycles were running, and children were crossing in front of me on their way home from school. And this time it was a peddler carrying a carrying pole. Here in Jakarta, some areas are quite fashionable and modern, but at the same time, there is a wide range of areas where peddlers carrying a traditional carrying pole like this man are active.

There were large boxes hanging from both ends of the man's carrying pole. The man seemed to be peddling bread, as both boxes contained several loaves of bread. In Indonesia, where rice is the staple food, there is probably quite a bit of demand for bread, surprisingly enough. The number of bread eaters may be increasing. After all, it was because this peddler was carrying so much bread.

Unfortunately, he passed me by as there was no one around me to buy bread. The suona he was holding in his hand didn't work. I wanted to see how it differs from Japanese suona, but I couldn't.
