It is so different from Jakarta. It's a nice and friendly city. Make sure you have enough time here. And try to schedule good.

    Very informative pages. I would go to Yogyakarta just to be able to visit Borobudur and the Temples of Prambandan.

    The first spider is a Nephila sp. (Silk Spider). It builds huge orbs sometimes almost a meter in diameter. The third spider is an Argyope&i sp. (orb weaver spider)
