Another unprovoked wake up at 4:30am inspired a spontaneous trip to the local market which the locals frequent from 5am - 7;30am. The sights and overwhelming smells of Asian markets are a feast for the senses. The meat section isn't for the faint of heart as various wads of unidentified meat begged for the haven of a refrigerator that was nowhere to be found.

The end of Ramadan brings with it a holiday period, where everyone travels around the country. The trains were fully booked for a week, we were told, so the bus was our only option.

We sucked on the flesh of the Cacau fruit though this time we did not stop to make chocolate. The young fellow told us about the music ...
... I had absolutely no leverage except to start packing to the bus station, where ever that is. He agrees and promises to have a driver there in 10 minutes. Two minutes later a very nice man named Ali rolls I. The parking lot, we pile in our packs, and we're off to Pemuteran. There aren't enough adjectives in the English language to describe the difference of Java and Bali. Trees line ...
