This is Jalan Thamrin (Thamrin Street), the main downtown thoroughfare, on a typical, kinda cloudy/smoggy day. Note the killer motorbikes (there's actually relatively few in this pic, by Jakarta standards).
Note also the ads with the very white-skinned people. There's definitely a bias toward pale faces in the advertising here. There's also all kinds of products to allegedly make you paler, including a bar of soap called "Skin White." I don't know how that's supposed to work. Does it have bleach in it? Or maybe white paint?
