I spent yesterday just getting lost in the city. Nobody walks around here though, and there were constantly taxis honking and slowing down when I was walking by. It's really easier to get a taxi or ojek (motorbike taxi) than not to get one. The pedestrian lanes are really narrow and in bad shape, or non-excistant. But I did get to walk through some slums, that was pretty interesting:)
I also got my iPhone unlocked in a store yesterday, Jeff was kind enough to help me:) it cost 150000rp so about 12+ euros. You really have to go around a lot to find the best prices. Even if the stores are right next to each other (and they usually are), the prices can vary A LOT. Also it's important to learn to negotiate prices, especially when you're taking and ojek. I went for my first ojek ride last night coming back home and it was a thrill! A bit scary though since they go in between cars where ever they can (barely) fit! I payed 30000 (about 2,50e) for the ride back and apparently got ripped off. I did bargain the price from 40000 but still. But I'm getting better already! Today I went to Gambir station to get a trainticket for Yogyakarta (the station is further away than the mall yesterday) and I got the driver to take me there and back for 30000, and it was a good deal too cause he helped me to buy my ticket:) the trick is to walk away if you're not getting the price you want, then they'll suddenly lower the price:P if it's still not low enough, there'll always be more ojek drivers around the corner. I'm departing for Yogya tomorrow at 8:45pm. It'll be 9 hours ride.
Today I've mostly been chilling with Jeff, who is a really really experienced traveler. The information I've got from him is really priceless! There's a poolparty tonight that I picked up on couchsurfing, hopefully Jeff and Rosa will go with me too:D should be fun!
