These boats were traditional, I mean traditional, they were completely made of wood.
|Logs and boats in full view, the workers move on thicker logs to get on and off the boats|
The people who unload these boats, are paid 20-30 dollars total (USD) per one truck. That money is shared among the people loading/unloading the boat. It's not that much.
The worst part was that since it was Ramadan month, they were fasting during the day, no food, no water... moving wood logs under the hot sun. Plus, they have to feed themselves/their families.
|Our tour guide of the boat. I could imagine being the tour guide, even for a few minutes, earns them a lot more than moving the logs.|
|This particular dish was 64,000 rupiah, the most expensive single dish I've had in Jakarta.|
The difference is staggering.
