southern plains of Java #landscape #java #nusantara new day, new leader.

Transportation in the developing world was not always as comfortable as in developed countries. forget about the safety, comfort sometimes still a luxury item that is not paid by the middle class and poor. At the time of the Dutch East Indies, the train was initially developed as a luxury transportation inaccessible by natives. If the natives could ride the train, maybe they should be in the “sapu jagat” wagon crammed with other passengers like wooden boxes. Similar conditions were still the same happened 6-10 years ago. humans were not treated humanely. they were forced crammed up to the destination, without air conditioning, toilet, even without lights. During this Eid holiday season (28 July-1 August), I saw significant changes. Trains gradually become a luxury transportation for all social class. Now they are humanized. I was there, at Pasar Senen Station, to covered “mudik” activities in Eid holiday season 3 and 8 years ago. And believe me, you are not going to see the same situation as in the photo above. if you were there eight years ago, you were even harder stepped up to the platform. thank you PT KAI for having the courage to change. for humanize humans. #mudik #lebaran2014 #keretaapi #stasiunpasarsenen #documentary

some say if you want to know more closely the area, visit the traditional market. I agree with that. forget the high class resorts, the activity around this jeepney more interesting. every time you see another jeepney arrive, you will wonder what they bring this time. banana? goats? pigs? chickens? coconuts? rice? #elnido #ASEANventure #travelphotography
