Indonesian Bemo Mirrors

Exploring the delights of Bajawa on the Indonesian island of Flores required us to hire a Bemo for us and our guide.
This photo is of the particularly nice set of mirrors the proud Bemo owner had used to decorate the inside of his clapped out van.

It seemed to be the norm for Bemo’s to be kitted out with the largest and loudest sound systems possible. We spent many short journeys being vibrated to our core, as a Indonesian boy band ballad’s blazed out the huge sub woofers that were cleverly placed  under the cramped Bemo seats.
