Sultan’s Palace Guards, Yogyakarta, Indonesia

003 004

Halo teman!

I love getting mail from Sergio 🙂 This time he added a little magnet 🙂 soo sweet 🙂

Kraton or Keraton is the Javanese word for a royal palace. Its name is derived from ka-ratu-an which means the residence of ratu. Ratu is the traditional honorific title to refer the “ruler” (king or queen). In Java, the palace of a prince is called puro or dalem. The general word to designate a palace is istana, as in Indonesian and Malay.

I like the hats of the guards 🙂 They are looking like red smurfs 🙂 too good 🙂

I send love!
