There’s nothing much I could tell about the first day journey. We started very early from Jakarta and arrived at Kuningan at 11 pm. We checked the homestay in the area of Catholic Church, Maria Putri Murni Sejati, Cisantana, Cigugur, Kuningan. They rented the bed per pilgrim for 20.000 IDR. The weather was very cold since it was located on Ciremai Mountain slope. We visited the Cave of Virgin Mary and spent the rest of day to get rest and relax.
During the night, ee ordered dinner and it costed us 20.000 IDR per person. It was quite cheap since they served fishes, tahu, tempe, sambal, hot tea, rice crackers and bananas. We took ride to the city to see the local life. There was nothing much we could see because it was the first day of Lebaran and many stores were closed.
However, we had a very good sleep that night in our thick blanket. :)
I planned to join morning holy mass service but could not get myself up for it. During breakfast, they served fried rice and egg and it costed us only 10.000 IDR per person. When we could not finished the meal, we could take the rest for our lunch on our way to Pangandaran Beach. The sight we glance during our way was so beautiful and spectacular. We passed the forest, yellow and green paddy and many colorful fields.
Just after entering Pangandaran Beach area, we directly looked for a room to stay 2 nights. The room price increased very significantly during this holiday season. Thanks God, we still had 400.000 IDR per night for a big AC room (with breakfast) in Hotel Alam Jaya. We got rest and continued to the beach for the sunset.
We had dinner in a local restaurant around our hotel and just went to sleep after dinner. We planned to go to Green Canyon at the other day…
Green Canyon and our way home….. (will be updated later)
