Isen Mulang Carnival 2016 Part 12 : Free & Easy in Palangka Raya

Location : Kota Palangkaraya, Kalimantan Tengah, Indonesia.

It was our free and easy day and Agus suggested that we did some riding in and out side of the city. So that morning after breakfast we jumped onto our motorbikes to wherever he was bringing us. He was not so specific this time but we trusted him. It was a nice sunny day and the traffic was not heavy.  After about an hour we had to turn right into a gravel road and very soon all we could see was sparsely populated area that was very swampy. We came to a halt at one point because the gravel road was flooded. We were supposed to visit a village called Petuk Katimpun. So plan A abandoned.

At the spot where we had to U turn

We turned around and headed for a Kaharingan church somewhere near town.

Western historians were more excited in presenting to the world the savage side, especially the headhunting. Palangka has a small Balinese community and a Hindu temple of course.

What caught our attention most was the blue mobile library made out of a van with 2 rows of books. Chairs were provided for borrowers’ browsing comfort. Eureka! This could just be the perfect idea for community service to remote villages. Good thing we dropped by.
