After an 1 1/2 hour flight we landed in Yogakarta, found a small cafe, and fed the kids. We opted for the 300k IRP taxi straight to the archeological park in the interest of time. Total travel wimps - but hey - we've certainly paid our dues on plenty of crazy bus rides all through Southeast Asia previously. The taxi driver took us straight to our first choice hostel, which it turns out we were the only guests. The LPG guide about Borobudur was right - we were ...
Woken up by the 4am call to prayer from the local Mosque but all good as we needed to get up for our sunrise trip for a view of Borobudur temple. Whilst still excavating sleep from our eyes we clambered onto the back of 3 motorbikes with Eric and 2 of his buddies for the 4km drive up to a hill lookout point where you apparently get the best view of the temple with Gunung Merapi in the background.

We didn’t have a spectacular sunrise because it was cloudy. However, we did enjoy watching the light come up over the temple ...
... to told at each one they were full. Personally I was quite pleased because I wouldn't have felt safe in any of them. After trying 4 places, an hour later the driver was near bursting point so with nothing left to do we asked him to take us to the nearest big well known hotel hoping that a more expensive place maybe a little more normal and comforting. So gone midnight he pulled up to a very posh looking glass door entrance to the lobby of ...
