It took no time for me to love Jogja. In mere two days, I have fallen.
With the beautiful Merapi,
and its humble people,
and its colors,
and its stories,
and its historical places,
and its night glee,
and its scrumptious yet cheap food,
and its festivities,
and, of course, the reason why I went there in the first place: the flying lanterns.
People say, ‘What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.’ I say, “What happens in Jogja stays in Jogja.”
Dear Jogja, thank you for the sweet escape. I’ll come back sooner than you think.
I love this town, I love you just as much.
