Master of Puppets in Braga Street
And if your talking about Bandung, it's one of the coolest places you can be. You gotta checkout Braga Street. It use to be a place where the Dutch colonials use to hang out, wine and dine and all those other fancy activities that the upper socialite do.
Nowadays other than becoming a Mall it also is a place to get wonderful paintings. And there are also souvenir shops.
And you can get puppets, these puppets are well carved and there ate also urban legend about them. Some folks say, at night they wake up and become 'talkative'. And the puppet master has a story of his own. To become a puppet master, there's this ritual that he must proceed.
This process is to get the spiritual energy required to be that puppet master. Like in the movies.
So it's a precious thing if you can take home one of them. You can tell your guest at home in Europe or other countries the 'spooky' story about them. Just like did you know that there is an actual Island of Borneo, where in the yesteryears there are really the village of Kong, King Kong.
So you must start that study of Indonesia, and come here to understand the stories that come around.
