When the man who was sleeping on the stall noticed the camera, he gave me both thumbs up and smiled at me

I was walking through the Glodok district of Jakarta. Here in Grodock is Chinatown. So there are several Chinese temples around here. I was walking down the street where only the locals are walking. And what I was heading for was also the Chinese temple.

Through an alleyway that has become a local market, heading to the temple I was looking for, there was a line of mobile stalls. But few stalls are operating. Maybe these stalls open only at night A number of empty mobile stalls had been placed on the side of the road.

When I walked around as if to check each stall, this one was closed, this one was also closed, and so on. In one of the stalls, a man was asleep. I felt like I'd hit the jackpot.

The man seemed to have just woken up and looked at me with sleepy eyes. When he noticed the camera in my hand, he gave me both thumbs up as if he was taking it on. And he gave me a beaming smile.
