... I told the ladies that I was going to attempt climbing it. I did, not really expecting any of them to follow me. As I got up, I found that the mother had followed me. Now this heavy woman is attempting to climb this, and of course, I gave her a hand and she made it. Until now, although we had been traveling in the same vehicle for over 15 hours, we had not talked to each other. So I initiated the conversation. Turns out that they were from Poland.

The driver couldn't work out how to repair it and a kind shop owner came over and helped do the job (he must have been a part time yoga instructor as he sat bent over in two under the bus whilst he worked!).

We decided to watch the 20 min audiovisual presentation about the ...

Not only was it a Buddhist temple, unlike Prambanan which was a Hindu, it was one temple, with a 118m by 118m base and perfect symmetry from its bottom terrace to its top, 6 in total. It was a grand structure wrapped around a small hill and set in a huge area of green garden with mountain views as the backdrop. The carving detail on the stone from top to bottom was intricate and precise, depicting gods ...
