THIS ONE IS FOR YOU DEE! THE PARTY'S OVER
The guys picked us up at 0500 and drove us to Borodudur, a 9th century Buddhist temple, the largest in the world. After visiting the compound we had breakfast and tried some yummy Indonesian fare.
Mendut, a smaller Buddhist temple, was next.

The final stop was Candi Prambanan, a 9th century Hindu temple.
