Very nice shot of this village with farmland Ian. Greetings Berend

I appreciate the intensity of the landuse, Berend with village homes and farm plots side by side with no wasted land at all. Rather like NL, in that respect?

Yes Ian, but we have to do this because we are with 16M people on a very small piece of land. Greetings Berend

The high population density of the NL, is matched by Java's 115 Million on their 132000 sq km, so they too know what it means to use their land. But it is the traffic in their big cities that is the real nightmare that is indicative of crowding!

That is 871 persons per square KM Ian. For the Netherlands the number is 491 persons per square KM. But in the provence I live the number is 1.246 persons per square KM.

The number of mopeds in Indonesia is incredible. They polutes also very much.

Greetings Berend

Greetings again, Berend. If I lived in Java, I think I would want to be able to work from home, or live at work, rather than try to commute each day!

Warm greetings Qianlong. Thank you for your visit and appreciative comment. And by the way, I still am impressed by your recent sunset images!

Dear Maja,

I called this Javanese Landscape but perhaps it would be more truthful to call it the Little Blue House! I wasn't standing, I was sitting drinking coffee and picked this out with my 300mm lens. I was sitting on the balcony of the Restoran The Peak, which sits atop its own hill. (Suggestion: enlarge the GE image)

There are many special places to sit and drink coffee while being enthralled by the landscape around or below! We must find one together one day.

On this occassion, I was drinking Javanese coffee with my close friends Denny and Sonny from Jakarta - partners in building peace. This is part of the view from Restoran The Peak.
