The view on the street

What I find most interesting about this photo is the barbed wire along the wall on the left.  With the rich and poor juxtaposed everywhere in Jakarta, there is a very high degree of security.  I don’t know that it’s all necessary, but there are walls everywhere on my walk home that are guarded by barbed wire, spikes, strategically placed rebar, and many, many security guards.

I guess that’s what happens when so few have so much more than so many.
