Today, August 17, 2011, Indonesian people celebrate 66th Independence Day. Indonesia is a truly beautiful country in nature that we should be proud of. I realize that Indonesia is still far from prosperity; poverty still becomes our main enemy. Though there are also other problems blocking our way to prosperity and glory; we must keep struggling and moving forward! Happy Independence Day!
For Watery Wednesday, I share here the Monument of Bambu Runcing in Surabaya, the Heroes City (East Java Province, Indonesia). This monument built to commemorate the martially fight spirit of Surabaya people against the colonialist. In that time, they fought against the Dutch colonialist by only using tapered bamboos.
Bambu Runcing Monument consisted of 5 different-height pillars; formed to look like sharp-pointed bamboos. I captured it from inside a taxi, I can’t get the best angle.
