Last night it was raining like crazy in Bogor. The train was delayed for half an hour just going back and forth before we finally reach the Bogor station. Now, I like the rain better than the next person but what I don’t like is getting my feet wet when I’m already wearing socks and shoes. It feels icky. It’s just something I pick up when I was kid. One day my mom took me to the market and it had rained the night before, as a result there were many mud puddles. It was horrific for me.
Let me describe what the condition was last night. So, Bogor station is surrounded by a market place and it’s not one of those clean ones. The area of the station itself is so-so, with a bit of trash and crumpled up newspaper here and there. There are certain places -outside the platforms- that smell like pee, it doesn’t really surpise me that people (especially men) still don’t use the toilet to pee. So imagine this place and add it with a huge rain. So yeah.
