The Sewing Man

My wife always says, "If you want something done in Indonesia, just walk down the street, and you can find some guy that can do it for you"....if you want some sewing done, "just walk down the street"...

So here it is...a guy with his sewing machine tucked beneath the underpass of the toll road...

What a beautiful old sewing machine, Scotty. Great photo, and I love the idea of just walking "down the street and you can find some guy that can do it for you"! I wish I could do that here.

This is an awesome picture, and this is so true for India as well. Sadly this seems to be slowly dying out...
