Beyond Language - Borobudur Temple A UNESCO World Heritage Site

We were visiting to Borobudur Temples which is retaining its one of the seven wonders of the world status in Indonesia.It was very hot and humid and we were completely soaked with sweat after our 40 km trip from Yogyakarta. But the joy and thrill of entering the famous UNESCO World Heritage Site made us to forget the inconveniences and concentrate on seeing the sculptures.The two magnificent temple complexes near Yogyakarta are Prambanan and Borobudur.

Travel Bites-Go By The Culinary Book

As I go on Globe trotting I come across Hostel;s,Home stays ,Street Joints where  I experience the taste of Local food at affordable prices.Being a vegetarian I have to see the food preparation with my own eyes before ordering them.Many times these little street chiefs give a big smile when I order my vegetarian combination to them and they are happy to see me devouring the food and not wasting anything.In places where I cannot communicate with the chefs like in Hongkong I am satisfied with Bread,Bun and fresh fruit juices.But I strictly follow these rules when I order my food.

1.There are several apps to check your food if it is safe to consume or not.

2.Avoid cut vegetables and fruits.Buy whole new ones and slice them yourself.

From Past Files- Houses in Indonesia

Home sweet home.All of us long to be back in our home after spending time outside.And also we are curious to know what is inside when we visit any new home.In Jakarta we decided to visit the Taman Mini Indonesia Indah National Park.We took the normal public bus to reach this location which is about 25 km from central Jakarta..But we went late by noon.One must be here at the opening of the park so that you can visit all the attractions leisurely and without skipping anyone.We were attracted by the model of the houses of the 27 provinces (current 33 )in Indonesia.In that we were able to peak in their houses without annoying anyone.
