On Tuesday morning, we flew from Jakarta, to Jogjakarta, a city about 8hrs away by car. There are 48 Universities here in this city. Among other things, it means much of the population gets around on motorcycles. The next workshop day is planned for Thursday, so we’ve had the privilege of being tourists for two days. An even greater privilege is that we’ve been hosted by Untung and his wife Ivany; we’ve shared many meals, and had many laughs, as we’ve learned about each other’s cultures. Homer has been thrilled to learn that Indonesians love Blackberrys (a Canadian cell phone!). Everyone has a blackberry! We’ve had the opportunity to see so much – here’s a snapshot of a few things.
Amazing Indonesian food, in traditional authentic restaurants.
Shopping for Batik…
Borobudur – an ancient Buddhist temple
Prambanan, ancient Hindu Temple. Both temples dated back to the first century AD, and are awesome beyond words.
Monkeys roaming in the park
and my favourite, the children.
We’ve had an amazing couple of days… looking forward to workshops tomorrow!
