As usual, on weekdays, the daily commute to go and get home from work always takes time and concentration. But that does not mean that during the weekend weekends the road doesn’t experience traffic jams, it can be more severe, especially in residential areas in the suburbs. If on weekdays traffic congestion can take two hours trip from office to home, on holiday for the same route can be four hours.
The photo above is a picture of the traffic jam I took after the two-hour drive home from work this afternoon for about two-thirds of the entire trip. As the city with the third highest traffic jam rate in the world after Mexico City and Bangkok, without self-awareness and patience, driving a vehicle in Jakarta has the potential to trigger stress.
Well, it’s not just traffic jams that can trigger stress but anything, even without any trigger. Like when this afternoon I met an old friend who seemed very wise and kind during our encounter. He always praised his virtue and always judged everything outside him as bad and negative. He even forgets by chronologically upon his own stories about the ugliness of others ten minutes earlier that contradicts the next story version of the same person. Smile and understanding are all I can give him.
As usual, I inform that anyone can join in on this fun photo challenge which was started by John artbytes26 . Just please be sure to check out Art’s rules and guidelines for the challenge in this post 365 Photos Challenge.
