I was still four kilometers from western boundary of Solo City. The air wasn’t as hot as midday earlier, now it was 14:15 hours and I had just finished exploring De’ Tjolomadoe Sugar Factory Museum. A portion of rawon and chocolate ice milk which I ate in the museum at least made me calmer and clearer thinking about the next stage of survey.
But it was been six hours since I left the courtyard of Grand Amira Hotel by Azana in Pasar Kliwon area this morning. I decided to immediately do an check-in process at Amaris Hotel Sriwedari. That means, I have to head to the middle of Solo City again. I decided to take an online taxi.
Soon I ordered it. Until the online taxi which I was riding began to rush towards downtown. After rode twelve kilometers, I finally arrived in front of Amaris Hotel Sriwedari in thirty minutes.
Rahadian immediately handled of check-in process at reception desk and I chose to enjoy a glass of orange juce as a welcome drink facility at this two-star hotel. We immediately entered the room and I decided to cool off myself under the shower.
I re-opened the itinerary which I had compiled in Jakarta. I took a deep breath, because there were still many agendas left to do. But before heading to the next place, I decided to take a moment to write down all important things which I have been getting since morning. I started to type all important things about Dawet Telasih Ice, Gede Hardjonagoro Traditional Market, Jaladara Tourist Train, Balekambang Park, Swiss-Belinn Saripetojo and De ‘Tjolomadoe. That notes would be a survey report which was needed by Marketing Conference Event Section to determine conference form in more detail.
Sharing the task with Rahadian in compiling the report, made it faster for us to complete it. It took one hour to make a detailed review of six destinations and the report was completed after I sent it via email to Mr. Dedi who is the Chair of Event Section who was of course still in Jakarta.
Feeling exhausted after twenty-two hours from the time of my arrival in Solo, I fell asleep beside my laptop which was still on. Looked like that Rahadian let me soundly sleep until a few moments later he started to wake me up.
“Mr. Donny….Wake up !. Let’s take another survey. We still have many places to visit! ”, He lightly said with a light smile.
“How long have I been asleep, Rahadian?”, I nervously said.
“One hour, Sir”.
“Oh Gosh, it’s late. Let’s go! ”, I jumped out of bed.
Almost five o’clock….I decided to pack up to go to next destination. I would head east for two blocks. This destination is in Keprabon area and only one kilometer from the hotel where I stayed.
Let me show you that place !.

Bagi tips jalan-jalan kpdi luar rumah di era new normal dong mas hehe
Aku panggil mbak Jenari aja.😊.
Masa pandemi ini memang terkadang bikin bosan, semua serba terbatas.
Banyak orang jalan-jalan tapi ga taat protokol.
Saya sendiri biasa jalan saat weekend di low season, mbak. Kalau pas long weekend dan orang-orang tumpah ruah di tempat wisata, saya biasanya malah memutuskan asyik di rumah saja.
Harus taat protokol, ga boleh makan sembarangan, hotel juga musti dinaikin sedikit kelasnya supaya menjamin kebersihan. Perpendek waktu liburan dan tidak bergerombol di tempat wisata.
Gampang dan butuh keberanian dan disiplin tinggi mbak.
Wah iya ya harus tau occasion yg tepat dan lebih hati” ya mas.. makasih mas ☺️
