We agreed! The BEST WAY TO TRAVEL is on a MOTORCYCLE - FLORES [S2-E13]
Today we are going to check out some history of Indonesia. We met this group of bikers, they`re coming from everywhere in Indonesia. Good morning everybody and welcome back in Ende on the island of Flores. This is a historical city. Because that's the place where Sukarno got exiled, the first president of Indonesia who declared indonesia's independence.
That's why we wanna go around Ende and check out some places. And after that, we want to go up to Moni, to be able to hike up to Kelimutu. Are you ready? Yes, I am. Let's go. > Let's go! OnTheRoadAgain. Oh no, it's still squeaky.
What's up everybody!? Welcome to Ende. This is Ende. Today we are going to check out some history of Indonesia. This is the city where Sukarno was incarcerated back in 1934 to 1939, by the dutch colony. He was put here back in 1934 because the Dutch heard of Indonesia was trying to declare it´s independent.
Or working it´s way towards independent. So Sukarno was captured in Jakarta, if I'm not mistaken and he was put here for four years. But last thing they know is actually that Sukarno was planning more because he had more time to think.
And preparing for the independent more here. He also formulated the national philosophy. Which is Pancasilla or five principles. And, oh there are... oh this is it. Let me park really quick and I'm just gonna show it from outside. Because unfortunately it's closed today. That was quick from the place.
So this is where he was incarcerated during his time here, this is his house. Unfortunately it's locked today because it's sunday. This is where he lived for four years between those years. I would love to go in, but yeah, we picked the wrong timing.
And that's Sukarno, the father of our independent. Really cool. And then, this house is protected by the law number five in 1992. Hello. Yeah, unfortunately it's locked. But yeah, it is what it is. We picked the wrong day to come over here. Yeah, Sunday again... already.
And now, we're going to the next spot. Yeah, so he was locked there. Not long, I would say because he still get to go around . But that's where he lived. Yeah, let's go to the next spot. We are going to the park where he always sits down.. > So he could go out?
Yeah yeah, he still could go around here and check out the city and what not. He actually built a theater here. So this is the park where he always went to when he was incarcerated here in Ende. I think we should be able to see where he sits down actually, but it's closed. Oh my god, this is so sad. Like, it's a nice monument here. Oh, there we go.
So that's Sukarno, where he always sits down looking into the ocean. Like, you could see it. Then that's the eagle, the statue. That's the symbol of Indonesia. It says Bhineka Tunggal Ika or unity in diversity. And that's where he sits down looking for inspiration. Looking towards the ocean. Back then there was no ferry over there. Maybe just uhm.. just the island there.
So that's where he formulated the Pancasila or the five philosophy. Or the five principles of the Indonesian philosophy. > Which is? I will show it when we're going to the monument.
Yeah, we would love to go inside but everything looks like it`s locked on sunday. Yeah, and nobody's inside, so it's for sure locked. Yeah, that's the father of the democracy in Indonesia. Good looking buddy. Thank you. Lets go, baby.
He grew up in Blitar. > Yeah, he was born in Blitar. We were there actually. > Yeah, but we couldn't. Because my motorcycle broke down in front of his statue as well there. Yeah, while we stopped to take some photos. > Yeah I'm glad nothing happened here right now. Cheers, We`re getting some ice tea because there was no parking place to go to the monument. So we had to stop here.
And let's go and have a look. The monument Pancasila. The Pancasila. Panca means five and sila means principles.
The Pancasila, the five guidance principles of our national lives. Perhaps you know already what our Pancasila is. It gives us the five principles of our state These are. First, Believe in God. Second, Nationalism.
Third, Humanity. Forth, Democracy. Fifth, Social justice. We are going straight.
Ende. We could´ve parked here. In the circle? No. Our video of Ende should be longer if the park and the museum was open. Unfortunately they were closed so hopefully we could come back here on the way back from our next adventure. Hello everybody! I`m waving to to my family. Hi, my friends. > Look at that. Wow, look at this.
Oh my God, endless. And that must be a land slide there. They just clean it, look! > Oh yeah. Scary. Oh my god, look at this rock. > Uh, this rock! Wow, look at that in front of us. The rocks fall so much, they even put a net there. You see it?
Oh wow. There's a lot of rocks hanging there. Even the big ones, oh my god. > Yeah, it`s a good net. And maybe they need to build it all the way there. Look how many rocks are hanging there on the wall. My god. But the scenery is amazing. And the river over there, wow.
Let's go to the river and take a bath. It's looking really clean. > Yeah. I think I could live here... Oh no, the landslides are scary.
But the climate is amazing. It`s not hot and it`s not cold. And have a big garden here. > You`re daddy would love it here. Sell his house in Switzerland, he could buy. God knows, how many hectares of land here. I should take a photo there.
Yeah, just pull over. Ah, too late. We can screenshot it. It looks so pretty! The paddy field, river, mountains. Here is where we start hiking to Kelimutu. Yeah, that`s the sign to Kelimutu Lake. Make a right.
