[Pic: Marching]
Gerak Jalan (marching) in Banyuwangi
The bus on the last leg to Gilimanuk was so old I could feel the floor moving every time we hit a bump in the road!

Java.   It was August 18 in Banyuwangi and the gerak jalan (marching) contest was still in full swing.   I didn't know why it was happening (now I know about Independence Day - Hari Kemerdekaan -- which is celebrated on August 17th each year), but this impressive display of marching was just a little bit scary (we Australians have all been told the old paranoid stories about the "yellow peril" that will invade us from the north.   :-)
