    Borobudur (Java, Indonesia) is said to be the biggest buddhist monument in the world. It consists of six square platforms topped by three circular platforms, decorated with relief panels and hundreds of Buddha stupas. I saw this couple waiting for sunrise in Borobudur. The place was still dark, without any artificial light except for the screen of their tablet. I loved this intimacy, as if they were the last two people on earth...
