We toured today, the bustling center of Yogyjakarta – Jogja. Markets, former Dutch residences, and the Sultan’s palace.
The character of Yogyjakarta – indeed, of most of Indonesia – is vastly different from that of Bali. For starters, most of Indonesia is is Muslim, and Bali is Hindu. There’s a lot to notice and comment on, regarding the different temperaments and cultures of the two, but a few days on Java cannot possibly give me enough insight. It is different enough, though. The Musin’s call is everywhere, for instance.
It’s a good education for Elliotte.
