  • Descrição


    Hello, my name is Boby and I am 40 years old. I live in Temanggung, Central Java with my 15 year old son. Temanggung is a beautiful city in Central Java with many beautiful mountains, rivers, and waterfalls. This city relies on its agricultural production and produces the majority of the coffee, tea, and tobacco in Indonesia. We are 35km from Yogyakarta, the cultural center of Indonesia known for its temples (including Bobobudur and Prambanan temples), the Sultan's palace, and the black sand beaches. Yogyakarta is a major Indonesian city that is known as a "college town" where many young people live. It is also where the airport is located, so people use it as a launching point for visiting other islands in Indonesia.

    I am an English teacher. I teach in a private vocational high school. Beside that I recently opened a coffee shop in the city center of Temanggung with the intention of bringing the local community together at this meeting place. We are located in the heart of the city and serve various coffees and Indonesian foods. The coffee shop includes a lively karaoke bar that people enjoy and sing at until late at night.

    Of course, Many of my friends are local english teachers, and we always looking to improve our english. We enjoy playing badminton, singing, and traveling. We love meeting people from all over the world and learning about different cultures!
