Outside the temple grounds, I got to practice my haggling skills with the local sellers. Got a five bells half their initial prize and a pair of leather sandals for 50,000 rupiah. Still had to do better. I have my eyes on this particular bag at Malioboro. Tomorrow’s my last chance to get that bag. Must train well today.
Our group had lunch and then dozed almost the entire trip to Prambanan. There was a long line for touring the main temple. I opted to explore the smaller structures and the temple grounds putting the newly purchased sandals to the test. They were strong and comfortable.
Tip: If you’re a student, bring your school ID as it would give you a discounted rate for entrance in the temple grounds. It was dark when our group left Prambanan. Other members of the group needed to rush to Malioboro to get souvenirs for friends and family back home. We, on the other hand, still have more time to shop tomorrow since our flight is in the evening 😀
