Here’s a picture of the past and the future:
The past because I’ve seen people do this in third-world traffic like Jakarta and in-lines skates were probably bigger — 10 years ago? 15?
The future cause I’m on in and about this avenue every day. Never seen it. Nobody’s doing it. And yet you can’t help but think about it. If I was just a little thinner and a little more agile. Interstitial intent.
If this was dude’s Mampang to Menteng debut, it was a perfect day because traffic was heavier than you’d expect on Tuesday (leaving the office around 4:30). Motor scooters used to be the skinniest, fastest thing on the road were blown away.
I saw her head up the bridge which would take her over the canal and then down into Menteng Plaza. Hardcore.
