New Normal: the pony cart

Trotting along in Bandung

You can still catch a pony cart in many neighborhoods. It's a popular transportation option for locals as well as for Indonesian and foreign tourists, who flood the city on weekends to shop, eat, and enjoy the comfortable temperatures.

Climb like a monkey

Bamboo is lashed together and up they go

Workers scramble up bamboo scaffolding to pour concrete, build brick walls, and plaster over them. This is how they build most apartments in Bandung!

Portable pet shop

Shall we buy a fish?

Put a turtle in your tank ... or a guppy or a black molly.

Meet the guy in the corner of the market. His aquarium cart boasts baggies of fish, turtles, and snails.

Find one you like, then point and pay! The ambient temperature is perfect and no further packaging required.
