We started with a tour of Istana Bogor. It's the presidential palace from old times. It's European style very white but there's Indonesian wood carvings and style. I kind of spaced out on the history lesson that was all in Bahasa Indonesia so I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves. But I could not take pictures inside so I guess I'll have to describe that part.
|The pointy part is a flag. And Micha from Germany is the person. Don't the clouds look nice.|
But my favorite was a picture of a mythical battle. If you imagined a war between ice and fire and earth then you'd be close. It was huge and their faces. It's probably some Indonesian story. I'd be interested in hearing it. Oh and I loved the portraits of the daughters and wives of the royal men (?). They actually were the ones not smiling with beautiful traditional clothing on. It was very regal in a dreamy way - they were looking off into the distance.
|Look at the green and the clouds and the chandelier! It's a nice palace.|
|These are the grounds surrounding Istana Bogor. Strewn with statues of naked people.|
|Hello unclothed crouching lady|
|I was frightened by the 10 or so kids approaching me on the max. 15 people bridge.|
|What an amazing tree. Trees I love you.|

|I just like this picture. I thought all my non facebook friends should be able to see it. Generous of me, yes? It's on a street somewhere in Bogor I think.|
