Water-logged Jalan Parangtritis

2:00 am

Woke up. Could not get back to sleep again. Had some bread and hot coffee. Transferred the photographs into the notebook and charged the batteries. Looking around the room to see what else needed to be packed, none, except for the pants and t-shirt to be worn tomorrow and those that I’m wearing. Nothing else to do, I laid down and rest.

9:00 am

I just looked at the sandwich breakfast, not touching it. Weather was good, I hesitated to go out and look for a bike to be rented for the day. I had intended to go to Prambanan and if possible Borobudur and Parangtritis beach to shoot some photographs with better preparations. I had

been to those places late last year but the eagerness to go this time around was not strong and it was already late morning and I had only the late afternoon. Made a hot coffee and ate some cheese biscuits, logged on to the Internet. Later on slept again.

4:00 pm

It was raining quite heavily with thunders and lightnings, glad that I had not rent the bike. The rain had caused Jalan Parangtritis near the road leading to the hotel where I stayed to be a little bit water-logged. Had late lunch and then off to Malioboro again to finish the excess cash in hand.

Left for hotel. Drizzling slightly. Took some photographs along the way while on the seat of the becak. Some experimenting. Nice reflections on the wet road. Nothing would be in sharp focus though. Back at the hotel room, I put aside the things that I had bought, grabbed the tripod and immediately went out for some night photographs along Jalan Parangtritis.

9:30 pm

Repacking the luggage bag then went over to Indomaret to have it weighed. 14 kilos, just nice. Back at the hotel room, switched on the notebook, wrote this blog and charging the batteries.
