POTD: Pinisi in Sunda Kelapa

From 2018 03 31 Jakarta

Today's photo-of-the-day is of a motorized pinisi at Sunda Kelapa, the old port in Jakarta, Indonesia. The "port only accommodates pinisi, a traditional two masted wooden sailing ship serving inter-island freight service in the archipelago. Although it is now only a minor port, Jakarta has its origins in Sunda Kelapa and it played a significant role in the city's development."

P.S. Fifty points if you spotted "L" in the lower left.
