Bogor and Bandung

We visited the famous botanic gardens of Bogor. I never saw so much diversity of tropical trees, plants and flowers, most of them I only know from expensive florists. Below a sketch of the buildings and palmtrees.
After that we continued towards Bandung; during a brief stop I had the chance to draw the above hilly teafields.

The next day we spend in Bandung, with very beatiful old colonial houses, although not all in good shape. Early morning we visited the still steaming and sulphur smelling volcano Tangkuban Perahu, where I was able to make this sketch. I used my grey ink fountain pens and waterbrush.
You can find a day to day travel journal on my blog:
