The 'other' reason for hitting Yogja is Pranbanan. Although by the looks of it there were plenty of other places to go too, for example a couple of volcanoes to climb and what looked like reasonably safe bike tours (Indonesian traffic is proper nuts!). All-in-all it was a shame we didn't have a bit longer there. Ho-hum!
Any-hoo Pranbanan will be the subject of the next update.
This one is a couple of paddy-field shots taken on the drive out there. The company we used emphasised that this was not the quickest way to the temple but used smaller back roads. Very nice it was too. Additionally, for every tour booked through them they plant a tree. Finally, the passion fruit and lemon cheese cake I had on our return to their restaurant was epically good! If your ever there I commend Via Via to you.
This was excellent! Really, really lovely and not completely over run with 'other people' despite what the guidebook threatened!
Each of these stupas house a statue of the Buddha that you can't see one of which is considered a lucky Buddh! Slightly bizarre but very cool (both literally and metaphorically!)
This will be a blog about my latest shots and what I liked or was trying to do with them
