Dear Reader and My Blogger Friends,
okey i can’t keep promising you to stay posting regularly like i always did, oh my God i do miss blogging actually, but my daily can’t compete with that, so i still try to keep posting once a week at least.
Still from the side of Solo, if you missed out my other posts about Solo, Central Java, you can visit my previous posts, I have a lot to tell you here actually about how appealing Solo is, started from the locality, the people, and all about it, but i know probably you will be bored to read it, i just give my points :).
Solo is the district where you can find out the born tradition, culture is stay long-lasting until now. for example one of the gate to welcome you if you have reached Solo territory, you will meet the awesome dome with Wayang (if you have known and i have a chance to explain, visiting the place with awesome wayang in it, i will show you what it is in my other posts later) and a little Batik carving ornament that decorate it. it’s one of characteristic!
It was hot day when i visited there, i only strolled around enjoying the beauty of Solo, because if i got in with some transportation, i was afraid, i would miss out some interesting things around, besides one good place and another was just near so i could easily be stopping by, fortunately the way for pedestrians was so evergreen, really it was so fun!
What i like about Solo is, The local people still maintain the old buildings that stay stand beautifully, you know the historical of Indonesia, We had ever been colonized by some foreign countries, it means they leaved some parts of them like buildings, and Solo had a lot of it.
The Fort Vastenburg , was one of the heritage of Dutch Nations who occupied and ruling for longest period in Indonesia. This fort is still around Hadiningrat Surakarta Palace so you can just walk down the street toward this place.
And i will take you to one of market i had found out, if you miss some antique things from ages ago, here is one of the place! called “Triwindu” i think the place is quite complete to sell out the old stuffs, like household furniture, radio, television which still get the good function.
when i look these suitcases i remember “Fantastic Beast and Where to find Them movie” !!!
Here’s the location,
