Kaki lima

I'm still trying to get more pictures up, but man, it's painful sitting here in the wartel waiting for big files to upload. For now, here's one of a fruit-and-vegetable stand out on Jalan Wahid Hasyim, around the corner from our hotel. There are far more stands than stores in our neighborhood; if you want something, you can probably find it at a stand, whether it's new upholstery for your chair, shoe repair, a phone card, or what have you.

This kind is called a "kaki lima," or "five legs": that's the three wheels on the cart plus the two legs on the cart's owner.
