These boots were made for talking. Yogyakarta, Java.


After the past several action-packed days, I really needed to take a day off for some rest and relaxation. I lanced and drained that blister on my baby toe, so I had to avoid walking as much as possible. I pretty much just stayed in my room, listened to my iPod and took a nap. At around 2:00 p.m. I decided to go for a bike ride since I still had three hours left on my rental. So, I just jammed around town with the never-ending stampede of motorcycles. It's so fun to get mixed in with a big crowd of them, especially at a red light when everyone gets all packed in super-tight. The best part is when there's a huge bus or truck right in front of your face belching noxious fumes straight into your lungs.

Welcome to Bedhot Resto in Yogyakarta, Java.

There's always delicious food for the eating at Bedhot Resto in Yogyakarta, Java.


At one point, I bought a bag of barbecue potato chips from a kid who sells them out of a little glass cart. He even has a little scale that he weighs them on, which is so funny. I ate a late lunch at my favorite restaurant in town, Bedhot, which is fairly cheap and decorated in a rad psychedelic motif. Next came a three-hour web session followed by an egg sandwich dinner to cap off a semi-mellow day.
