An Unconventional Charm (a.k.a. who needs a picket fence when a jagged sidewalk will do the trick)

Jakarta Street Life WANDERLUSTANDWONDER.COM

traffic flows like mud through a sieve here, but the view is fascinating.

Sometimes I imagine myself staying in one place for more than a few years…what must it be like to have localized roots?  When I envision the ideal kind of place where I would like to set up shop, it becomes pretty much the opposite of where I am typing from now.  I mean who would say they would love to live in a chaotic, rough, grimy, uber-congested, haphazard and copiously populated place?  But these indulgent, innocuous glorifications are not honest in nature, because the truth is that Jakarta has its own charm that has grown on me and cultivated a curiosity in me that is proving to be addictive.

      Thanks! Yeah, thanks to You and Kaho, I was finally able to figure it out :) But no photoshop for me (baby steps!)…I did the watermark in Picasa.
