Breakfast was lemon marmalade sandwich. Left the hotel for Tugu station on a becak. I was taking advantage of the shuttle train services between Jogja and Solo called the Pramek. I came to know this when going to Jogja from Solo. It is just about an hour trip. I decided to make a day trip back to Solo and to take some photographs that I didn’t took the chances then. These services make for a nice day trip either way.
Arrived at Solo Balapan. Not taking a becak, I walked to Pasar Legi. Bought some Pecel peanut sauce, I forgot this one 😉 . Then, a becak ride to Alun-Alun. Had lunch at a Padang food stall. Took some photographs of the crafts shops nearby and then headed for Pasar Klewer.
Pasar Klewer is well-known for batik. Anything that is batik. There’s the original batik sarong, then batik dresses, shirts, t-shirts and now a plethora of new ideas. I bought a batik printed notebook bag here previously. This time I just walked around leisurely and bought a few t-shirts of different designs than previously bought.
It looked like it was going to rain, I then took a becak ride back to Solo Balapan Station.
Back in Jogja. Bought a burger at the station, it tasted nice the last time. Walked along Jalan Malioboro.
Back at the hotel. Asked at the counter for hot coffee. Savoured the burger, coffee and killing the time idling.
Online. Writing and updating this blog.
Exhausted my second 6-hour coupon. As of now I am on my third coupon and had reached this point. Till next time.
