A Trip To Jogyakarta - Borrobudur Temple - Volcano Mountain Merapi Indonesia

Well it was very exciting participating in the trip to Mount Merapi which height is around 2450 meters above the sea level (As a Comparison to Puncak after Bogor is around 1200 meters above sea level, Grassberg, Highland, where PT Freeport Indonesia's operation in Irian is located, around 4000 meters above sea level, Himalaya is around 8000 meters above sea level).

This volcano mountain is actually still active and is located in Central Java at Jogjakarta.The smoke coming of the Mount Merapi is called by the villagers as "Wedus Gembel". We were shown movies of the Mount Merapi which is very exiting and informative. We also went to the Borobudur Temple which is really very beautiful, and was guided by a tour guide who tells us the story of Budha as shown in the relieve surrounding the Borubudur Temple.

It was told that Budha means "Enlightment" or the man who has been enlighted by the light from God the All Mighty. Budha as been told in the relieve of the Temple is really concern of the poor and the needed people, which is reflected in the ribs of the poor people where their rib bones are showing that they are in hunger, and is close with Budha.

In the evening we went to see the Ramayana Story, where the moral of the story is the fight between the evil and the good in this world, where there is Dewi Shinta, Hanoman, the Monkeys, and other characters in the Wayang. Well it was really enjoing because the occasions was held by the alumni of Warung Dahlan and Warung Senggol of the Alumni Faculty Of Law, University of Indonesia.

O ya, we went to Jogja by Train departuring from Jakarta around 8.00 in the morning and we reached in Jogjakarta around 16.00 hours. We also went shopping batiks as souvenirs from Jogja. We returned from Jogja to Jakarta from around 9,00 night and arrived back in Jakarta around 5.00 clock in the morning.

I also want to tell, that when I was in the Hotel Room in Hotel Novotel in Jogyakarta, Indonesia, as well as in the batik stores in Jogya, I felt the vibration, detected in my head and thus I assume that there is sort of energy waves in that area which I can detect through this vibration(maybe) . Well I think this is all what I have to say about our trip to Jogyakarta and have a nice dream and trip to all of you who like to travel.
