At first, quiet was difficult to find. The whole weekend proved to be a fascinating experience in observing two utterly separate cultures use the park, jungles, and the Mountain of Love, Merapi. Today was the day of the tourists... this gentleman was sure we were going to collapse at some point and he would then be able to feed his family for a week on the proceeds from the water sales he would score. We played hide and seek (actually, more like "red light, green light", but I eventually stopped and let him pass us so he would get the message. There wasn't much on this first hike that let us feel we were in the wild, but it was still an interesting walk, and we scored the guide for the next day's adventure during it.
