Just back in Australia after ten days in Indonesia. First two days were spent cross-legged on a rattan mat in a batik studio learning traditional batik methods using beeswax and a tjanting (pictured). While staying in Yogjakarta went to see the Ramayana performed in traditional Javanese style and was mesmerised... Indonesia is truly an amazing place from being woken at 4.30am by the call to prayer, the shoals of motorbikes on the streets, Borobodur (pictured), traditional dancing at the sultan's palace (pictured) to drinking ginger tea and more tofu than I have ever had in my life...oh and durian....that is a whole other story...
