After Wates the capital of Kulonprogo regency, we deviate from main route to Purworejo, we travel by "Selatan-selatan" route. This route actually the monument of Dutch while they're colonize indonesia. This road was renewed It takes less kilometers and time than main route, but there many point of this road still broken, so we need to extra beware of these points.

When arrived at Ambal, a small city south of Kebumen, we take a rest an dinner. We ate special food from this area, "Sate Ambal". The special sate is famous among the culinair lover. One of our motorcycle had low fuel, so we decide back to the main route for search of gas station. we turn our route to kebumen, there we get the gas station.
