In an unfortunate turn of events, the crew of the Spirit of Majapahit, a replica of a ship on the walls of Borobudur have reportedly mutinied and refused to proceed further with their planned voyage from Indonesia to Japan and back. The crew cited overly dangerous sea conditions beyond the capabilities of the ship, the lack of insurance and late payments and are returning home from Manila.
