Tinkling Bells in Java
JAVA – from its seething, traffic choked capital to the calm Buddhist temples of BOROBUDUR is a fascinating island. The superb museum in JAKARTA is massive, well laid out and simply stuffed with fascinating items from all over Indonesia; the food is excellent and even the civit cat coffee surprisingly good.
At Borobudur the calm temple with the tinkling bells and incense drifting through the morning mists was a delight; it’s a small site compared with Bagan in Burma and excellent for a short break with the benefit of a superb hotel – luxurious and architecturally breathtaking.
Would I do it again:
love to, for more time everywhere!
What did I enjoy the most:
still mornings with tinkling temple bells
What did I not like:
traffic crawl in Jakarta
go slowly, there’s much to absorb
