I have travelled inland towards the mountainous area to a town called Malang ... but sadly had to pass the town ... Sidoarjo which has been covered by mud because of a continual eruption of gas and mud. Here is the link for further reading ...
Here I stand with the driver that took me to Malang ... infront of an area where just the very tops of houses roofs can be seen ... a tragedy for certain & it makes one constantly thank one's lucky stars for everything that we have.
The people in this town have lost their homes and work !!!
