I was suppose to visit Dieng Plateu to see those colorful well and also small temple near this place. However, due to the sulphur is so strong and not safe to visit, my driver suggest me to visit Kali Putih to see the lava. What I heard from the local - the cold lava was at 11 meters high and the sounds of erruption can be heard although this place is like 25km away from Mount Merapi. My driver offer to move futher to Kali Adem which is much more nearer to Mount Merapi..... hahahaha too tired and afraid Mount Merapi suddenly got angry and I have no way to run... so I said ...too tired want to go back celebrate Christmas...since this is during Christmas day.... yeah yeah ... I chicken out! There mount merapi but not that clear
Visit to Ketep pass with one objective .... to see Mount Merapi. Journey on top of this highland was..... owhhh so far.. Since I am foreginer, was told to pay IDR25,000 for package inclusive of complimentary drink and watch recent Mount Merapi disaster movie at one the theatre. Very sad ... I heard people still happily scream yahooooooo.... during this disaster... damn it!!! Other people is dying and some people loose their love ones damn it!

The Human is beyond described! Urgh!!!! hate crowded place See that!!! Many Buddha statue either lost their head, lost arms and many seems to be missing from the Stupa Most of this craving is about a story Many of this is not properly match and imperfect condition If yesterday I went to the largest Hindu Temple in Indonesia, today is one of the seven wonders - Borobudur the Buddhist Templ
Swimming pool near seaside??? You can't swim on this beach due to the fierce current ride this AV with IDR50,000 per half hour Don't really like the feel of this beach. My Driver was very shocked when we went through the one and half hour journey ride to this beach and I only stay there for only barely half hour.

Talking about the legend.... very interesting because I heard about this legend since I small... oopppsss I mean I read it somewhere during my primary school. Yup ! I love to read all those tales.
