oriental Vegetarian meal.

we were picked up by the people from Pure and headed to the
YMCA hotel in Kowloon.

although the name YMCA does not sound like a very high end hotel, the hotel was really nice and surrounded by many veggie restaurants.

another early morning to get things rolling.

went over towards the hotel where Jules was staying at around 5:15
and once i got there, we got on a car provided by the organizers of the namaste festival.

i was just amazed how there was no traffic at this time.
the whole time i was in jakarta, all I saw was really bad traffic and so many vehicles on the road. but not this morning! 🙂

got to the airport super early.
too early that we had to wait quite a bit at the airport.
got ourselves some food.
