On the south side of Jakarta Kota station, there is a large street stretching along the railroad tracks. There is an entrance to the station, but there are no squares or stores, just a stretch of street. Nevertheless, the side of the street seemed to be a place for Bajaj and Angkot, a passenger vehicle. Many Bajaj were parked. And many automobiles coming and going all the time.
There were many bajaj drivers at the bajaj stops, and men touting and accommodating at the Angkot stops. In Tokyo, I've seen more and more female bus drivers. But here in Jakarta, both Bajaj and Angkot are male-dominated. There were no women except for customers.
The man in the cap in this photo was one of those working at the Angkot stop. He was standing by the side of the road outside the sidewalk, relaxing, probably because it was the time when Angkot was not coming. He grabbed onto the guardrail on the sidewalk and stretched out. He closed his eyes for a moment, and when he opened them again, he was a little startled to see a camera in front of him. Still, he seemed to be pressured by my camera. The man smiled at me as he grabbed the guardrail.
