Tuban six years later
and so many have changed

I have learned so many new things all over the time I spent here. So many things I have discovered more to my first impression from Tuban when I arrived years ago.

I visited all the amazing places around the town. I spend hours with my friends at the Waterfall Nglirip, the Cave Goa Ngerong and the Jetty Pantai Boo. And now, I have to leave and to return to Germany after almost 6 years in Indonesia.

However, the centre of urban life is the Alun Alun. That is actually the place in the middle of the town.  All social activities take place here. Like night markets, public events and the Friday and Saturday nightlife. Here we enjoyed many times the great Wayang Kulit performances.

Tuban is also the home of the Kwan Sing Bio temple. It’s a Chinese temple and only a couple of minutes to walk from my house away. Here we followed many events like the Chinese New Year or anniversaries.

Like everywhere in Indonesia Batik is famous in Tuban as well. The traditional motifs are almost from sea creature and very dark with a lot of blue. As the usual practice in Indonesia, Friday is the Batik day. Even me on Fridays I always wearing a Batik shirt.

Tuban six years later what does it mean to me? Indeed I saw good things and bad things. But most important is that Tuban is going further and developing year by year.

Finally, I have to say thank you to all of my friends I found here. To all of the guys who helped me, supported me and made my life comfortable. After almost six years I have to say goodbye. Of course, I will keep all the nice moments from this extraordinary time in my memory. It was a great time full of great memories.
