Actually, Ratu Boko's palace is a relic of archaeological site that is different from other sites. Many people think that Ratu Boko Palace is just a temple like Prambanan and Borobudur. In fact, Ratu Boko is a former palace complex consisting of several parts of the building.

The first door is made of andesite rock, but the floor and the wall of the stairs are made of fine white limestone. Because built with andhesit stone construction then Ratu Boko temple is actually more similar to the palace.

We wait the public transportation for a few minutes. Not long after that the public transportation came. Fortunately, the public transportation was empty. We are immediately  on public transport. For a few minutes we waited until it was full. Not long after that the public transport already full because it was filled by students. The atmosphere was hot and stuffy. But I don't care, the important thing I quickly arrive at home because I was very tired. 

Not long after that the public transport started going. When the public transport was on the way i just pay my attention to the road and sometimes I chatted with my friend.
