A short train journey from Solo brought us to Yogyakarta, the number one tourist destination on Java. World class sights, excellent food and a cultural interesting city.
We spent 4 days and nights here, walking in the busy markets, enjoying a music performance (gamelan) in the big palace (Kraton), and finally visiting the grand temples of Prambanan. All this at the same time as Yogyakarta were in the worldnews, with the eruption of Merapi creating big headlines.
