Jakarta residents struggled to get home to celebrate Eid Ul-Fitr in their respective homelands, as Pasar Senen station in Jakarta fills up with crowds. Indonesia, August 25th 2011
After performing religious month of Ramadan to celebrate Eid Ul-Fitr at home with family has become a tradition of Indonesian society. The struggle to return home would have been a familiar sight each year. Staying at the train station and crammed with hundreds or even thousands of other passengers to get their tickets would be an interesting story to always be listened to.
Economy class train with a service that could be considered far from comfortable but because the price is relatively affordable for the small community is still the idol transport.
