Today is the longest road track of our entire program, 9 hours in total with a boat trip included of 3 hours. During our boat trip we saw jungle nature, traditional local villages who live with free natural resources like fishing, coconut housing, and hosting the most criminal prisoners of the country. We passed a place called 'Alcatraz' like the one in the US...impressive! But...from far we could see the dome of a Mosk inside the walls of this ...
... she told me they were coming up to our hotel room for the massages. What? What about the table? What about privacy? And what kind of massage are we talking about?

... walk through some more of the local village and seeing more of the rural javanese lifestyle. Pangandaran was still much different, as many of the domestic tourists would hire out the most gaudy multi-person bikes that had lights, a place to plug in your music and almost no volume control. Some of our group got invovled with that as well.
After two nights in this town, we moved on to one of the cultural jewels of Java, Yogyakarta.
