When I walk around Cirebon, I often see bicycle cabs called Becak. Of course, there were cars and motorcycles in this town. But it was the becak that attracted me so much that I turned my camera to it. The fact that it was a vehicle that I was not accustomed to seeing in Japan makes it even more eye-catching. As proof of this, I didn't remember how many non-taxi bicycles I saw in this town. I didn't think I saw most of them, and I don't think that's true. What I didn't pay much attention to is completely in the dark now that the trip is over.
That being said, this photo was also taken because I was attracted by a Becak that was parked on the side of the road. It was not unusual to see a becak parked on the side of the road, waiting for customers. However, it was not so common to see the driver sleeping in the front seat with a look of anguish on his face. He looked uncomfortable. As I was setting up my camera on the road to take a photo of his anguished face, a passing driver of a Becak was looking at me with interest, probably because of my conspicuous appearance.
