My dad tells me it isn't wise to use too many photos here, but as usual my hearing is selective. Candi is the Indonesian word for temple and Solo is the name of the town near the mountains where I visited this past weekend in Central Java Indonesia. The journey through the mountains reminded me of Chiang Mai, but of course it also didn't.

I love the landscape in the mountains and talking with the local folks. There is nothing quite like going through the mountains on two wheels.
