Today we tried to shake our travel blues and traveled up to Prambanan to see the Hindu temples. It's one of the largest Hindu temples in SE Asia, dedicated to Shiva (the destroyer), Brahma (the Creator), and Vishnu (the Preserver). A huge earthquake destroyed much of the temples in 2006 and they are working to restore some 200 temples that used to stand here, one used for each priest.
The sites were spectacular but what was hilarious were all the school children who have never seen white people before. Eric's height made him the most popular target! Kids chased us down and took every opportunity for a photo with us, shouting "photo meeester???" and "oooo photo misses!!!!". We couldn't turn them down and enjoyed being so popular.
