Bridge Of Sighs

BRIDGE OF SIGHS: Two women bathe while another washes dishes on the riverbank under the bridge at Jembatan Dua, West Jakarta. A shortage of clean water in slum areas forces squatters to use river water for their daily needs, including bathing, washing dishes and cooking, despite the fact that it is highly polluted. JP/R.
