just a quick update:

yesterday we surprised daria by taking her to the spa where we all got a massage, body scrub, milk bath, etc. price? 25.- for two hours.. haha i love it! could go there everyday. the coolest part was where she sticks some sort of burning candle in your ear. sounds like hocuspocus but it's not. it sucks out all the dirt from your ears. i saw it. it works. my ears are now squeeqy clean and i'm so gonna get that done again! :D

today we got up at 4.30 am. we went on a tour where we saw the buddhist temple in borobudur which is quite nice, lots of rice paddies or fields and also potato fields, a sulfuric lake and some sort of sulfuric crater thing.. imagine te smell of rotten egg burps and multiply at least 10 times.. that's the smell around the crater where it's the worst. i think the main attraction on the tour was us though. we were among very very very few foreign tourists.. most were local youth am families visiting from central java, etc. some of the teens (mainly the boys) stuck their phones in our faces and took pictures as tough we were animals. i thought that was very rude and so i got angry and told them they should ask first. but what can you expect.. they're teens and we're exotic.. they really don't care i don't think. many others were really sweet though and asked very kindly in indonesian or englisch or creative sign language if they could take pictures with us. i always love that. they get sooo excited and you just know that that's gonna be their favourite story for days!! and they are very grateful. the key is always asking.. i hope those boys will understand that too one day.. (i did imitate them very openly by exaggarating what they did to daria.. i stuck the camera almost up her nose hahaha.. i'm sure the boys saw it.. maybe they got my point)

that's it. i will post the pictures from today tomorrow in this same blog so be sure to chrck again if you can't find pics. now i really need to get some sleep. i' exhausted!!!

love ya'all. ;)

p.s. the wheels on the bus refers to the minibus we were on for a good 8 hours today.
