Whose idea it was to build the Indonesian city of half a million people right slap on one of the most seismically active parts of Java, with the inevitable results….Earthquakes and volcano eruptions? Sometimes in this country you have to stop wondering and accept the Indonesian way…

Borobudur, by the way, is a massive (The largest monument in the southern hemisphere!) symmetrical stupa wrapped around a small hill.  One of the world wonders!!
