At Zero Kilometer of Jogjakarta
This is the zero kilometer of Jogjakarta where distances to four-corners of the city are calculated. The old post office stood afar. Lots of people (locals and visitors) gather at this place to see and be seen.
OMG..I bumped into Javanese-style ghosts. Two of them. But...instead of being wrapped in whites, they're wrapped in blue and red clothes. Geez...people would find it bizarre and intriguingly amusing at the same time.
Since it was about to rain....we sped up our stroll along the area and got to see any shelter in the neighborhood.
Then...we passed the old Presidential Palace--used when Indonesian capital was moved to Jogjakarta (from Jakarta) during the Dutch Aggression in 1945.
Since it was already closed, I could only take a peep from its main gate.
