... Yogya on our first night, we soon realised that our street is probably the best in the city... it had good restaurants, local warungs (local food) and just a nicer atmosphere. The rest of the city was pretty ugly to be honest... nothing on the scale of Jakarta, but still a far cry away from the special cultural city that we were expecting.
On our first night, we went to a restaurant almost opposite our hotel called ViaVia. It had a bit of a ...
... had wiped out many houses, and to places that were steaming, the rocks still warm... Apparently it erupts every 4-5 years, so its due again now... Post-volcano we went to Parangtritus beach, picking up Rani and her friend on the way. Being Poojas last day in Indonesia she really wanted to do some paragliding... By UK standards it was super cheap, but by Indonesian standards it was a bit of a chunk so as I'd already been spending too much so thought I would give it ...

We even found the time to explore the big local market filled to the rafters with batik, head-scarves, clothes, savoury snacks, colourful indonesian sweets, and everything in between. The market was nice to see, and fairly similar to other markets we had visited on our travels, however the locals seemed to be surprised by our presence there which was a little disconcerting by the end.
A great thing ...
