Waterfront in America is premium and it's where the rich build their mansions with shore edge gazebos and docks for their yachts. But in Indonesia, it seems the opposite. Here is where the shanties and derelicts reside. The bay is their garbage dump, their bathtub - and for many - their highway for their boats, and it has nothing to do with prestige or luxury. We'll let these pictures tell the story:
In need of some maintenance
It's a long way down
Busy fuel dock
Taking a bath
On the outskirts of town
On his way home
The kids are the ones who find joy in their life on the water's edge.
Always big smiles for the camera!
With thanks to the locals, we had an entertaining self-tour of the Indonesian waterfront!
