River of Garbage

Source: The Jakarta Post

RIVER OF GARBAGE: Two people pick their way across the garbage-clogged West Flood Canal in Tanah Abang, Central Jakarta. The Jakarta administration has yet to dredge all of the rivers and canals in the capital in an effort to ease the annual flooding that accompanies the rainy season, which is expected to begin by the end of this month.
