Super Sokka…

 

Super Sokka means “excellent tile”.  The stack of tiles, above, are roof tiles, made by hand, in a village Central Java.  We met the woman who was making the tiles – she presses out the mix of mud and clay with this medieval looking manual press – and she said that this was her job and that she pressed these out all day long, all year long.

And she seemed happy.  I don’t know if something that routine could keep me happy.  I also don’t know if something that routine actually makes her happy, or if she was just smiling because a couple of expats found what she does so interesting.
