Day 16

Bali to Java

Yesterday I took another ferry and left Bali and went to Java. For some reason moving cities seems to just take so much out of the day that once again I just went to my hotel… Graha Cakra hotel and got all settled in, even though my trip is coming very close to an end. This hotel was older and still a little more traditional, but not like the Inn in Bali.

Today I had a great night sleep so I could go and see one of the most amazing places and the one I was most excited for during this trip. I went to Boroburdur. It is a tree tier Buddhist Temple, and it lies directly south of Tidar Hill, a small knob on the valley floor which according to myth nailed the island of Java in place. It was made a world UNESCO Heritage Site; it was so crazy to see! And it only cost $7CAD because I’m a student! Even thought it was rather hot today, it is custom for women to be rather covered up when visiting religious sites; I looked on www.asiarooms.com/travel-guide/indonesia/culture-of-indonesia/indonesian-etiquette.html to find out some common customs and etiquette before I left for this trip. Then I spent the rest of the day just wandering around and taking a ton of pictures.
