Yogyakarta, Indonesia

Just back from Yogya after an excellent but regretably short 5-day trip. We had a fantastic time thanks to the amazing hospitality of our friend Sinang Aribowo (MATUR NUWUN!!!) who showed us around not only the most enjoyable Dirgantara Mandala Museum where a Mitsubishi Ki-51 (Sonia) and a Nakajima Ki-43 "Hayabusa" reside (photo below) but also around Yogya where we had the privilege to sample some of the most exotic and delectable food ever. If in Indonesia do not forget to try the flavoursome "SOP KAKI KAMBING"*.

Special Terima Kasih to Iwan Winarta. We'll see you in Jakarta!

*(Goat Legs Soup) eyes, testicles, brain, butt, leg, gut, hooves of goat, mixed with strong spices, coconut milk, clove and more.

Great picture! It seems this particular Sonia was modified in post-war service (fin, rudder, canopy)? Will you post Hayabusa photos?

Best regards,
