The World On My Doorstep

An ever-expanding postcard blog

My First From Indonesia!

on September 24, 2012

This wonderful, colourful card comes from Intan in Indonesia as part of a postcrossing direct swap. She tells me her hometown is a city called Bantung but that now she has to live in Jakarta for work. She explains that the picture is of a traditional dance in Bali called Barong which tells a story of a fight between good and evil. She says that every one of the thousands of islands of Indonesia has its own traditions, laguages, tribes, building styles and beautiful places. She also mentions her favourite UNESCO site in Indonesia – Borobudur Temple, the biggest temple in south east Asia and if she gets the chance she says she’ll send me a card from Komodo Island which is apparently now one of the new seven wonders of the world. Oh, I do hope she does! I have watched so many documentaries about the beautiful place! Wonderful card!
