Long Haul

A “tukang loak” by trade, Onip earns a living by roaming the city, purchasing various used items that he then resells to a junk yard or recycling plant. One of his more frequent customers is the owner of afleet of Bajaj three-wheeled cabs in East Jakarta, for whom he transports newly renovated cabs from a garage in Jelambar, West Jakarta, using only his cart. The grueling four-hour walk across the city earns the 58-year-old Rp 100,000 ($8) per trip.
