The Bridge over the River Kahayan

The only time I've been to Kalimantan was when I had to take a transit to Manado, and I never went around anywhere. So on November 2009, me and my friend took a trip to Palangkaraya, Central Kalimantan. One of the first sights in our quick tour around the city was the Kahayan Bridge over the Kahayan River.

Underneath the Kahayan Bridge there are some small warung (food stalls) which sells nasi goreng (fried rice), rawon (Javanese beef stew), soto (some kind of soup), and some es campur for dessert. They also have Ketupat Kandangan, which is a Kalimantan specialty, but the opening hours are a bit unpredictable when we came there.
