Rural Java


 After Borodudur we made a tour in horse carriages through the rural surroundings (still our 6th day).
We visited some farmhouses, saw how local families lived, how their houses were built, how they prepared meals and what they grew on the fields.
All in all very interesting, and I enjoyed the open and friendly people.
I was able to make above sketches on location, sometimes you get just enough time. The below sketch of the ricefields was made during the traintrip, and was a compilation of what I saw through the window.

He Rene! I have missed some of your posts . I enjoy reading your experience and watching your sketches. First at all I thought you "evaporated " from earth surface !! I have been traveling for some days as well but not so faraway as you did!!
I like the Dieng plateau drawing with deep black shadows! (day 6)

Showed your sketches to my mother, she was delighted, comes from the Dutch East-Indies; thus wellknown landscapes for us, makes it even more interesting. Fijne reis!

Thank you all for your encouraging remarks, I hope the sketches show some of the good times we had over there.
