    Dutch Words and Javanese Script on a Post Box.

    All around Java, you'll see remnants of Dutch Colonialism. The remote mountain town of Wonosobo is no exempt. This orange post box has dutch words and ancient Javanese script (hanacaraka) inscribed on it. Click the picture open to take a look at it.

    Note:Does anybody understand Dutch? If you do, pls tell me what the words on the box means? Afternote: Thanks to RoyJava for explaining in detail what the words meant (Brievenbus = letter-box, buslichting = letter - collection)

    Where: Just Opp the Tourist Office, Wonosobo, Java
