One of the delights of Yogyakarta city is that things are always happening in a quiet and subtle way, and this can be most rewarding. That morning I spent hours relaxing in from of Keraton Yogyakarta Hadiningrat . The sun was so warm and the breeze was cool and I felt a tremendous sense of serenity. Then a walked down to the west heading to Pasar Ngasem and Taman Sari. I stopped for a couple of minutes on the street and lane outside the Keraton wall while I was admiring quietness of white-washed walls surrounding Keraton Yogyakarta.
