Badung to Yogyakarta

Up early again for a long train journey to Yogyakarta.  After this I think we've done most of the long travelling and have some amazing places to visit.  By Indonesian standards we're travelling executive class and to be fair it's pretty decent for an old train.  Some great scenery along the way and 7 or 8 hours later we're in Yogya.  The hotel is nice and has a pool so after a quick swim we set off out with people from our travel group to find the markets and food stalls and somewhere to eat.  Yogya seems a bit more touristy, there's plenty of bars and craft shops and that sort of stuff.  Got talking to some of the travel group a bit more and everyone seems easy going.  We've got a few Brits, Canadians, Swiss, Austrian, Americans and our group leader Andri who is Indonesian.
It seems quite busy at night here and after food we go to a busy bar.
Tomorrow we go to Borodobur, the largest Buddhist monument and sanctuary in the world. This is one of the places I've looked forward to most.....
