We started out this morning in familiar territory – at least familiar to me since I have been there before – Malioboro Market.
“Lucky” for us, Hugo wakes up at 5am these days so it’s easy to get out before the heat of the day settles in.
Malioboro is at the center of Yogyakarta’s tourist area and is lined on both sides with stalls and shops selling local arts and crafts.
So far on the trip we haven’t found an outdoor market that Hugo doesn’t like.
After walking all the way through the market, we picked up some fruits to eat at home. I had some questions about rambutan yesterday, so here’s a picture of what they look like on the inside:
We also picked up some mangosteen, which I love but Gareth hates. More for me!
Mangosteen is sweet and amazing.
It tastes like your favorite day dreams manifested in fruit form.
We also picked up a few of these:
Gareth loves salak, but I’m not crazy about them. They taste like a really dry apple.
