Weekly Photo Challenge: Hot

A few months back I went on a walking tour around Jakarta’s Old Chinatown. It was my first excursion to see that side of the city, and did enjoy it very much. The walk was quite exhausting — broken pavements, heat, humidity, crazy drivers — but it is refreshing to see the vibrant and strong Chinese culture and the big group of people joining in the tour itself. It gives me hope that diversity, cultural and heritage values are still preserved in the midst of all these skyscrapers, malls and sporadic interfaith/culture conflicts.

I took this picture in one of the Chinese temples we visited. I was aiming to get the combination of colours and shapes, but I think the candle flames — including the small flames seen through the window — will fit the “hot” topic 😉
