We take a short day trip to nearby Solo, another cultural capital. The city is nice and quiet with much fewer tourists and touts. We visit a Royal palace that is still in use, and are invited to sit in the king and queen's chairs! Sure! Why not! We also check out a nearby hilltop temple, Candi Sukuh (Candi is pronounced Chandi and means temple or shrine), of which little is known, besides its obvious links to fertility.
