These are everywhere, mostly in more remote areas.  Selling “bensin” (gas) in 1 liter bottles.  Perfect for a motorcycle to make a quick stop.

In the mountain town of Tomohon, dozens of construction companies have models of these wooden houses – for about 125 million Rupiah ($10,000), they will come to your land and build you one of these.

During Ramadhan, Muslims fast from sunup to sundown for about 30 days.  During the day, restaurants that are open have curtains so people fasting don’t have to see anyone eating or drinking.

At the hotel in Jogja in celebration of Ramadhan is this Bedug (drum) made of butter.  (DeeAnn is pointing, not touching, because the sign says ‘don’t touch’!)  Before there were loudspeakers announcing the call to prayer, the Bedug was used.  Now it is mostly ceremonial.  Why it’s made out of butter, I have no idea….

The residents at the University brought this pizza-style martabak – cheese, chocolate, nutella, oreo, peanuts.  Delish!
