Massage and Lulur Java Style

Choose your massage girl

After a day of sightseeing in Jogja, I was ready to take it a bit slower. And what’s better than having a massage when the day has been long. Funnily enough, in Belgium I have only had one or two massages in my life, but since I came to Asia, I must have had more than 10 – of varying price and quality (but always under 10US$/hour), and with a variety of endings ;-)

But one of the friends had an emergency and had to return to his village, and the other guy played mini-football. So there I was, all alone in a big new city, getting lost and enjoying it. Sometimes that’s the best way of discovering a city.

Jogja in 2 days - thanx to friends

Jogja in 2 days - thanx to friends

I met a friend in Bali who showed us around town, took us to eat in some local places, went dancing with us in the weekend. We had a good connection. And good connections bring you very far in Indonesia, very far as I found out.

When I discovered that I had only a few days left in Indonesia (because of a ticket I had booked months before, without thinking too much) I thought I would not have the opportunity to see much of Java. But that was without counting on my Bali friend.
