View from the Bus
Little fuzzy due to the moving shot, but this is a typical scene of the countryside in Java accompanies my epic inter-city journeys.
The longest journey by road yet, continuing my battle with Indonesia's local inter-city buses. This time was a three-leg journey, first from Wonosobo to Purwokerto (3h), then to Banjar (3h) and finally to my destination Pangandaran (2h). Including waiting time during the transfers, total journey time was almost 9.5h! Glad to have survived it, and I'm sure it'll be good training for more to come in future...
Anyway, arrived at Pangandaran, supposedly one of Java's better beach resorts. This was low season so there weren't many tourists at all, apparently things heat up during New Year and after Ramadan, when locals flock here.
Stayed at Bamboo House, nice place with attached bath and wifi, IDR80k.
