Purwakarta is one of the districts in West Java which has nice nature tourist resorts. The famous one is Jatiluhur resort, a beautiful lake with water power plant which produces electricity and irrigation water. The government has developed the tourist resorts such as golf yard, grass track, tourist village and the most attractive is fish cultivation.
Unfortunately, I can not find the harvest. It's already over 3 weeks ago, a farmer tell. So, I 'just' looking these beautiful green padi. But I was really satisfied. And I stated ... will not write down the word "paddy" or 'rice' anymore but PADI. Yes, as simple as these green grains before the harvest come.
To be honest, my memories about Cambodia still here in my mind. VTer NickIng [Nicholas Ingram, UK] addressed me as "Miss Wat" which got post syndrome Cambodia blues for a long time. Well, maybe [yes be!!!] ... since I notice I just scream "Phnom Dangkrek [name of mountain range nearby the border of Cambodia - Thailand] look-alike!!!" when I saw these hilly areas on Purwakarta!
Ranca Upas, a forest which very well known among universities in Bandung for initiation. Also has a deer nursery and camping sites.
Means goodbye Purwakarta, I am heading to Jakarta now! Below the bridge you can find the old railway.
Wana means hutan [Indonesian for forest]. It's a pinewood forest with small lake inside. Nice, quiet and tranquil :)
This is artificial dam, dike or weir in west Java. Several events for off-roaders [jeep lovers] were held here and this place also ideal for camping.
