Chewwy, nice photos, especially those of Borobudur.

I've never been there, always thinking - until lately, maybe - that the place would be just another local tourist site (too many people, bad lawns, and littered with discarded Teh-Bottle boxes and paper everywhere), only writ larger.

However, those photos show something else. It would be foolish to think the location for a project as "grand" as that would be chosen arbitrarily. So, an influential "board" of religious leaders must have figured the site had special power even before they got there.

What do you think? Is there any mystery left in it? When you were walking around and up and down it, is it just a nice, large, volcanic-stone monument, or does it still have some "mojo" left?

Again, good photos.
