It was an impulsive trip that me and Dian Prasetyo took on a long weekend. Went to Solo by train from Jogja only 8000 rupiah for each passenger. It was a hot deal, yeah, I knew it, that’s why I love go to Solo 😀

Beside Laweyan, we decided to visit a Gamelan factory in Wirun, Sukoharjo. Some people said there were few Gamelan workshops that still running. But it was a quiet village when we arrived in Wirun. I thought, I came at the wrong time. But hey, suddenly I heard forged metal sound behind a wall. So lucky, I visited the workshop at that day. Because the workshop owner said, that they only make Gamelan by order now.
