Personal highlights

  1. Ramayana: traditional epic poem about the struggle of a prince and his princess
  2. Prambanan: large Hindu temple compound from the 10th century near Yogyakarta
  3. Performance: endless uncoordinated jump'n'run to monotonous traditional music 
  4. UNESCO: three temples (Shiva, Vishnu, Brahma) illustrating the epic of Ramayana
  5. Ballet: one of the most boring and annoying shows I have ever seen
