After staying in Yogyakarta for the night, it was time to leave the hotel for my next destination. As I waited outside of the airport, taxi driver's constantly asked if I needed a ride, but I politely smiled and said "no thanks." I had a ride and was eventually greeted by a friendly face from the school. Thank goodness!
It was a bumpy, two hour ride to Salatiga. It was also extremely hot outside. Extremely. In fact, I had already consumed 5 bottles of water and it still wasn't enough.
Once we arrived at the school's guest house, I had a chance to relax. Here's my lovely room. I actually had a room to myself.
I desperately wanted to call my family too, which came with a set of interesting challenges. I had a chance to walk around the neighborhood in the evening and met some of my classmates too. I was already having a blast and was completely intrigued by my interesting surroundings.
The sights and sounds of Indonesia are very different from Hawaii. There's so much I still have to learn about my surroundings. The first time I saw a baby on a motorcycle, my mouth dropped. At times, I see entire families on a single motorcycle. It still amazes me.
I'm still getting used to Indonesia, a place I'm quickly falling in love with. It's a beautiful country and I hope to explore even more of the region.
