Yes one more day, and I will be in Yogyakarta. Mom is understandably apprehensive about me travelling alone. She wanted to invite her church friends over and perform a farwell mass to pray for my safety, but I managed to talk her out of it, thank God. But she did make me swear at our family altar not to go near young boys or sleazy women while I am there. Sigh, you make one mistake (fine two) in the past and they will never let you forget it. And sleazy is such a general word isn't it? What might seem sleazy to her might not be sleazy to me.
Anyway it's not only about women, I am also really looking forward to going to see Borobudur, which is apparently the largest Buddhist temple in the world. There are also a lot of other cultural and historical places of interest that I am going to check out, as well as a go karting place if it's cheap enough.
K on to other news.
Read a very interesting article on Live 8 which I really have to agree with. Did that concert really help anyone besides those who performed (by giving them a whole lot of free publicity) ?
Oh and if you ever heard the album Frances the Mute by prog band Mars Volta, read this extremely funny review. Hey I love them to death, but they did go a little overboard on that album, even for that genre.
