Right now we are on the train to Bali (I write in the notebook on my knee, very comfortable heh) and I have a lot of time to think what I liked in Jogja. Borobudur (of course), reggae night in Lucifer (cool music!), Eka and Mirko’s hospitality (thank you so much guys!), and the beach.
In Indonesia you don’t count the distance in kilometres, you say how long it takes to get there on a motorbike. To the closest beach in Jogja, Parangtritis, it is about 1 hour driving – so not that bad. After a disappointing trip to the bus station (300 000 rp for a ticket to Bali, crazy bastards), we went to grab some lunch and see the sea. On the way we ate the best and the cheapest mie ayam in Jogja (a small warung on the street, sooo good!).
The sea in this place is too dangerous to swim, although it’s a great place for surfers, so we just sat and relaxed on the sand. Black sand.
It was close to the sunset so we waited until it got darker and darker. Kids were playing in the small waves, some people were riding horses, and some were just looking around.
Kev and I were the only tourists there, so of course we had a small photoshoot with locals (foto, foto, mister!)
It was so great to rest a moment, far away from the city and traffic, just lazy hours in the breeze.
I can’t wait for the Balinese beaches 😀
