THE UMBRELLA PEOPLE OF THE BOROBUDUR TEMPLE

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Borobudur. The world’s largest Buddhist temple, located in central Java. It took me 17 hours to reach it from Bali and I have to say it was worth the struggle… hadn’t there been the umbrella people.

UMBRELLA PEOPLE 
[Am'brela Pi:pl]

Human beings of Chinese or Japanese origin holding up devices consisting of a circular canopy of cloth on a folding metal frame supported by a central rod, used as a sight block against other human beings. Collectively gathering around world wonders, they are generally known as "The ones who displease". They feed on pictures, especially photos they have taken of themselves.
