Yogyakarta Indonesia Week 1
Carolyn and I have been here for a week now and having a great time! Here's a taste of our experience:
New mural by our friend Arie Dyanto. It's awesome! There are now over 500 murals in Yogya.
Aaron Noble's mural (three years later) -- this one has held up the best.
Andrew Schoultz's mural (three years later) -- faded and peeling a bit, but still looks pretty great.
Sadly, Carolyn Ryder Cooley's mural did not hold up so well -- it was repeatedy bombed with graffiti and the city asked Samuel Indratma to repaint it.
We went to what was once the Sultan's Water Palace -- very beautiful, the city has just renovated it. However, what we really loved were the batiks (made by the neighborhood residents). Check these out -- they couldn't be more over the top:
We then visited the Sultan's old underground mosque.
And I still have my obsession with vehicles -- especially cool old trucks. I would love to be able to bring one home from here.
And the catalogue editing begins!!! Gebang (at computer) is our newest addition to the crew -- he's helping with the final work.
What's work without a little play?! We took a break to paw Arie (in his new Mexican wrestling mask that Carolyn brought him).
Meeting up at Via Via with Ade.
Hanging out at Sam & Ade's.
