There was some really...interesting entertainment on the train ride to Purwokerto - it was a blend of the cheesiest music videos I've ever seen mixed in with "101 things you can do with xyz" instructional guides. The latter featured helpful advice like how you can make a toothbrush holder out of cds. Or a toothbrush holder out of index cards. Or a toothbrush holder out of a plastic bottle. Or a toothbrush holder out of binder clips. The person making the videos had a serious obsession with his hot glue gun and toothbrush holders (also phone holders). On the plus side, we were all laughing loudly the whole trip.

The Seloliman Nature Reserve is an NGO, primarily oriented to teaching locals sustainable farming approaches. It was reallllly peaceful, and we got to spend a lot of time exploring the village nearby which was a nice change after being in bigger cities.

It seemed strange that they use fishing poles to catch the fish in tiny man-made ponds...

The mosques here are much more elaborate/colorful than I expected or have seen elsewhere (this one isn't the most unique/large...just happened to get a picture)

Really started to grow fond of the 4am call to prayer. Most days.
