the day of silence

Yesterday it was Hari Raya Nyepi, the day of silence marks for Hindus a new beginning. It is also a national holiday in Indonesia. On my walk to the train station of Bandung, I photographed this sleepy parking lot guard. Upon arrival at Gambir train station in Jakarta I spoke to some taxi drivers who were not able to buy any breakfast, because they had not yet had a single ride that morning. Most Indonesians were having a slow start (the non-Hindu Indonesians would later that day crowd the shopping malls). I have no split personality, so I could take only one taxi.
