We traveled to Jogjakarta last weekend to catch up with friends visiting from Canberra. We stayed at our favorite place (so far) on Java Island: d'Omah, in Tembi Village, about 20 minutes by car from Jogjakarta. d'Omah is owned and run by Warwick Purser, whom some consider to be the Jim Thompson of Indonesia, for his pioneering work to build the Indonesian crafts industry. Warwick is also now the honorary consul of Mexico; hence, the plaque at the entrance.
On Saturday morning, we visited Prambanan, a 1000+ years-old Hindu/Buddhist temple complex about an hour away from d'Omah. Photos of Prambanan and of our weekend at d'Omah, which included friends from Jakarta, are available via: http://www.flickr.com/photos/clayton_bond/
