The Javanese settlement « previous 11 of 13 next »

The Javan settlement was an island of tranquility on the noisy Midway. Most of the cultural displays featured carnivalesque barkers goading visitors to enter their exhibits. Not the Javanese. They were often found sitting on the doorsteps of their thatched roof cottages playing musical instruments. There was a theater with an orchestra which played native Javan instruments. Java is an island in the Pacific Ocean south of Vietnam.
