Suriname works as a tourist guide in Old Town. He shows people around the sites of old Batavia, he is passionate about history, and hates it when people litter.  Together with the other guides they formed their own business. He shares a room with 2 other guides to save money for his family. His family lives in east Java. Cultural heritage buildings are neglected and go to ruin. In the rainy season there are no tourists and it is hard to make a living.
