Stretched along Bengawan Solo—one of the longest river in Java, and guarded by some volcanoes: Mt. Merapi, Mt. Merbabu and Mt. Lawu, Solo is a tranquil city of Javanese culture and tradition. There’s a certain ‘ancient’ atmosphere that will captivate you instantly: a certain feeling of going back in time; especially as you get closer to the palaces or keraton—the sound of gamelan music wafting faintly from somewhere, batik cloths hanging from the drying rope.

If you love strolling around antique markets, just like me (pretending you’re living in a different century, spotting all those beautiful objects back from the day your mother or grandmother hasn’t been born and making up stories about the imaginary people who used to own those vintage-whatchamacallit as you go along), Solo would definitely charmed you with its Triwindu Antique Market.

Here are some pictures to please your eyes:

  1. Ya ampun Hanny, pas banget lagi, aku tgl 2 Januari kmrn pasar tri windu solo (Aku di Solo tgl 31 Des 2011 – 3 Jan 2012). Beli loro-blonyo di kiosnya Bu Dami yg di bag belakang. Senengnya, jalan2 ke Flea Market itu kayak mengunjungi jejeran Galeri, trus pemiliknya yah para pedagangnya 😀

If you made it this, far, please say 'hi'. It really means a lot to me! :)

I recently have this fear: I would not have enough time to read all the books I want to read. Every time I glance at the pile of to-be-read books on my shelf, I feel overwhelmed. How can I keep up? I can feel myself getting anxious when I think of how, for sure, I won't be able to.
