Gungung Bromo, Indonesia’s largest volcano

After leaving Bali at 9am, we arrived at Surabaya (SUB) on the island of Java at 9am. Nadya and I were picked up at the airport by her cousins friend, who was kind enough to drive us 2.5 hours to her cousins place.  That’s exceptionally nice – would you do that for a friend’s friend visiting?   Would you drive 2.5 hours to pick up a friend’s cousin’s new friend at the airport?

The plan was to head to Gungung Bromo, their largest volcano to watch it at sunrise.  We got a ride to her cousins, at which point we’d we’d take another leg of transportation towards the base of the mountain, and leave for the mountain around 4am. It’s a lot of effort but Lonely Planet Indonesia (Travel Guide) raved about it.

Indonesia has 129 volcanoes (debated number; some place the number as more than 150), most in the world, and none are more beautiful than Gunung Bromo, on the eastern side of the island of Java (same island as Jakarta, Indonesia, where U.S. President Barack Obama once lived). There’s actually 40 volcanoes on the island of Java alone, but beautiful postcards from Indonesia with a volcano are typically of Bromo. It’s impressive!

Monkeys Everywhere!

Monkeys in Bali – I found myself surrounded by macaques (monkeys) in Ulu Watu, in Bali, Indonesia. They were everywhere!  I had never seen so many monkeys in the wild, in their natural habitat. Photos of these Long-tailed macaques from Bali are below:

this monkey started laughing so hard he appeared to fall off the branch and roll, and then kept until 2 other monkeys joined him in the laughter.
