This man was in one of the food markets in North Jakarta. He was trying to maneuver his bike-cart out of the market so he could make a delivery. As soon as he saw my camera, he turned from a serious businessman to a comedian. He came alive for a few minutes when he became this entertainer.
Then, he needed to move on and get to work. Mood came on and off like a switch.
Everywhere I go in Indonesia, I find happy people.
A tip for all of you newly married (and maybe old-married) people out there: find out what your significant other’s favorite flower is and bring it home every once in a while. Just because.
Those are my kids. We were walking back from a short visit to Pura Batu Bolong, a Hindu temple near our hotel in Lombok. They got ahead of my wife and me. They are incredibly great kids. When I became a parent, I had no idea how much happiness my children would bring me. The happy is immeasurable.
Those smiles are dangerous.
