Bandung never lost its charm. Even in the twilight when the rain was about to drop. Put aside the disturbing traffic jam –blame it on the weekenders from Jakarta– walking down on Jalan Braga is quite enjoyable. The weather is not too hot, the trottoir is wide and clean, the restaurants are plenty and some are interesting, the art deco buildings….

make a nice photo backdrop. And there are these painting shops and sellers alongside the street. Here they got my attention. The paintings being offered are typical paintings I would see in some Rumah Makan Sunda, or in my  childhood homes in Garut and Bogor. O dear, I must have a photographic memory as everything reminds me of my childhood. The photos below were taken during my ten minute visit on Jalan Braga on the way to a friend’s wedding last month.
