Botanical gardens

Yesterday, we made a quick visit to the Bogor Botanical Gardens. This is a beautiful sanctuary in the middle of the city that has been there since the early 1800s. Rather than me explain it all, I direct you to wikipedia.

The gardens are huge, and we barely scratched the surface. I’m looking forward to spending more time there! Luckily it only cost about a dollar each to get in. While we were there, we saw some giant lily-pads, enormous trees, a Dutch colonial graveyard, and a (somewhat disturbing) “zoological musem.” LittleB described that last one as “a bunch of real animals but they’re dead.” Yup.

Check out the pics:
