What a day!
Firstly: sleeping on a train is AWFUL. We got to Semarang at 5:30 (after 9hrs on a train!) and made our way to our accommodation (Omah Pelur guesthouse) where we were lucky enough to check into our rooms. Courtney is sharing with me. The view from here is awesome, teetering over a red-roofed valley.
We had some amazing Nasi Goreng at the guesthouse for, breakfast, then rented some bikes and set about exploring the city! We went right into the rural areas, visited the mall, and rented a car for our activities tomorrow!
