Batavia

 

This building is old.  I don’t know how old, but there seems to be little of the building left.  The top floor has very little roof.  But the first, second and third floors are still occupied.  There are signs of life all around:  open windows, electric fans, store fronts.  The decay is juxtaposed with the signs of life.

I love this city.

    • Yeah. Batavia seems full of those. Do people actually live in buildings like these?

      • Usually this type of building is from the Dutch era, used as government offices and all that.
