Java journey - stop #1 - Tangkuban Perahu

View from the Tangkuban Perahu, a dormant volcano 30 kms north of the city of Bandung, Indonesia

Its always mesmerizing to see the mountains stacked up in layers of differing shades. Somewhat representing the slow unraveling of relationships and people. Kirsten and my journey to the island of Java, Indonesia began with Bandung and Tangkuban Perahu was the first stop.

This is the first time I have witnessed a volcano (albeit a dormant one) at such close quarters. This was the view from the top of the volcano. On the other side the mountains shrouded in mist with a bed of green tea estates at their feet were nothing if not majestic.
