Or all of Indonesia? this one is central java. there's lots of Puppets huh and the puppet shows nice what's back here oh nothing puppet making was definitely not part of the palace he just took me around to all these places there were cute bookmarks so we asked how much for a bookmark and he said 100,000 for a tiny little bookmark I don't know everyone else was like stuck there so I'm trying to go to the Water Palace which is close to here there's so many horses so cute I want a horse for the Water Palace Taman Sari how much is it Foreigner 25 000. that's not bad actually all right 25 000 again and she said the underground mosque is closed here is the entrance hello hello where do you come from?
