Bridge Over Troubled Manholes

Written text…
Its 91 degrees in Jakarta. I am going to mall.
I have given up fixing my hair as most of the time I take a scooter taxi. Which requires me to wear a helmet. Many people wear a mask or a scarf because there is a lot of exhaust from the vehicles and the scooters. If I don’t it makes me sick to my stomach.
Today I am going to show you what it is like to walk on the streets of Jakarta.
It is not always safe and you have to dodge a lot of obstacles. AT&T could use this as a good commercial for not texting while walking, driving or riding a bicycle:)
The man is helping the car back out of the parking lot into oncoming traffic so he doesn’t get hit by another vehicle or scooter. He gets paid a mere $2,000 Rupiah. Approximately .15 cents ( I said .35 in the video…I was wrong)
