weekend Snapshot : row a boat

this isn’t in Bangkok, Thailand or Banjarmasin, Bornoe, Indonesia.
just another piece of Jakarta’s life.
He clean the river from all plastic glass and bottles that was thrown away to the (already) polluted river.
The river was so smelly… i can’t bear it. 😦
I take this picture while visiting some historical places in Kota, Jakarta known as Oud Batavie or Old Batavia. A trip that was organized by a mailing list known as Sahabat Museum.
Sahabat means best friend.
During Dutch Collonial, Jakarta was called Batavia.

more picture is here, but i use my language for the explanation
