Photographer’s remarks

The History barging in Indonesia began a long time. Start from bamboo rafts (getek), canoe, boat, until a boat that uses engine power. Transport through the river system is one of the forms of transportation used to transport by inland waterways. River can be used as a means to deliver timber-harvested timber to the shelter. Transport by rivers has the advantage because relatively cheap, yet their use on the wane, especially in areas that have been built roads and bridges.
