Side Snap: Storm Over Borobudur

Storm rolling in over Borobudur

 

While visiting the breathtaking Buddhist temple of central Java, Borobudur, I felt the air cool and the ions charge and within minutes, a once sunny sky turned intensely dark. I was 2/3 of the way up the temple and realized that any chance of avoiding the rain was gone so I accepted my impending wet fate and continued circling the levels even in the pouring rain. For me, the wet conditions added another level of mystery to the already mystical setting and thinned out the crowds a bit, making for a more intimate viewing of this jungle treasure.
