…From Day 3 – Monday 26 October 2009
Heading from Yogyakarta to Purwokerto where I met my brother who joined me from Bandung. It’s a very kind of him to take over the wheel from Purwokerto,Central Java to our final destination : Bandung, West Java – knowing that Bart must be exhausted after 3 days on the road.
Purwokerto for me is a city with memory of my childhood visiting grandparents house, this means : lots of good food and laughter. I still have my aunt living in this city today. Like any other city in the country, the javanese culture moves parallel with the modernity and development. It is the capital of Banyumas Regency, Central Java region, Purwokerto is located near the base of Mount Slamet, the highest volcano in Central Java.
