Day 3 – Borobudur, Magelang, Yogyakarta
0300 – My tour transport guy came to fetch me from the hostel. I woke up ready for the day with chocolate bars and water that I bought in preparation for the adventure. We had to pass by another hotel to fetch the other two people who was booked with me last night. It was a good one-hour trip to Magelang. The Indonesian couple were very friendly. They went to see the sunrise in a hotel somewhere in the west. I went to the east side of the temple.

It’s great to see people from all over the globe trying to witness a phenomenon that happens every single day (sunrise) but in Borobudur, Indonesia. The temple has four sides and is sort of Pyramidic surrounded with “stupa(s)” and Buddha statues. After the sunrise, I went around the temple and managed to create a timelapse video that looks like a real life Temple Run game.

Back in the hostel, I met two cool people from Tahiti and Germany. Too bad I have to leave for Surabaya. Just had a few chit chat and bye bye for Mr Dom. It’s time to fly to Surabaya.
