Java | Around Yogyakarta

In the last couple of days we have learnt how to batik and how to weave using bamboo. We have also visited the silver crafting area and met Slamet’s family; Slamet has been our driver during the last couple of days and he has been very kind and welcoming. We also went fishing so my mom and I could have something to eat we weren’t allergic to. We turned out to be pretty bad ass in fishing and it was incredibly awesome to eat the fish we caught. In the evening we saw a traditional wayang show; majestic. It were a wonderful few days. Tomorrow we are going to Bandung with the train. It is supposed to be a stunning train ride and it better be because it is 7 hours long (!).
