"Staying in Kotaraja was the best experience we had in Indonesia ! We went to a traditionnal wedding, we visited a school, we learnt to plant rice, we went to the local market etc. The food we ate there was delicious and they took care to not cook spicy for me. Faiz and our host Amenk were the nicest persons we've met so far, they even bought a birthday's cake for Paul's birthday ! Thank you so much for everything !!!"
