We had decided to take an excursion to see Borobudur, which involved a long bus ride of close to 3 hours.
This excursion, however, also included a half-hour train ride, which provided a welcome relief from the long bus journey.
The train ride proved to be quite spectacular, taking in splendid views of the rice fields of the area.
Most enjoyable, especially as I hadn't expected much from it.
