We decided to risk the train ticket again until the morning and headed back to the guesthouse to book our flights.

It turned out that the whole ride from Jakarta to Banjar was like a travelling marketplace where we were offered all sorts of things from notebooks and therapeutical sandals to redbull and ice cold mineral water; and of course ...
