Garut (Indonesia)

8

A small city,not actually.. it's like an Old town, it's just 2 hours from Bandung. This old town is called Garut. It is famous for its "Dodol", "dodol" is like some cake, traditional Indonesian cake. Food again food again. Well Garut also famous for its Hot Spring Water or I called it Hot Natural Water from mountain.

Garut..Garut, This town always attract domestic tourist like me. So on the Chinese New Year, My family and I went to Garut for 2 days and spent some quality family time. Of course I bought my lomo with me :)

There so many delicious food in Garut. Indonesian meat balls and noodle or in Indonesia is famous known as “Baso”. So I went to this vintage/old school restaurant which owned by a cheerful Chinese old lady and I took her picture. You can see the old lady in the gallery. Since it was The Chinese new year (on that day) I also took a shot of “Barongsai” or the dragon formed by some local people. It was so lovely to feel these cultural things (especially food things). Oh I wish I could be the host of “No Reservations” in the Discovery Travel and Living but the main difference is me,Adi.. I took my lomo with me and Anthony Bourdain seems to forget his camera :))) LOMO ON,PEOPLE!!

    Lovely shots! I've lived in Indonesia for 8 years so they really seem recognizable.
