A Super Train



There are a number of trains that connect Bandung and its eastern and western suburban rural areas. These are what I'd fondly call "super trains" because they can and do carry anything and everything: people, farm produce, and sometimes even aminals.

The green bundles you see stacked at the doorways are banana leaves ready to be transported to the markets in the city center.

Banana leaves--I never would have guessed it!
That would be funny to see animals on the train.

What do they do with the banana leaves? (I remember, when I was little, some people had their meal on them - don't know if they still do that?)

Love the color of this photo against the local life !

Jeannette: Yes. Banana leaf is very useful and good food wrap. Unlike plastic or paper, it actually makes the food more flavorable too.
