It is more than a year ago that I have been to Laos, Bangladesh even longer. Finally I found the time to edit these videos.
That one from Laos is in german but with english subtitles. That one from Bangladesh is basicly just some GoPro footage and some photos from a market with some bengali music. Enjoy!
The Bromo-Tenger-Semeru-Nationalpark is one of the famous sights in Java. In the nearby city of Malang are many tour agencys who can organize jeep trips to the vulcano. I decide to go by bicycle, store half of my lugagge at a friends place, organize a warm sleeping bag and go.
Karimun Jawa is a group of islands at the northcoast of Java. Shireen and I decide to stay there for a few days.
Merbabu – Mountain of Ash
The vulcano Merbabu (meru=mountain, abu=ash) is the twin vulcano of Merapi, and just 10 km away. Unlike Merapi, Merbabu is not an active vulcano and not dangerous. Starting point for this adventure is again the village of Selo. But this tiem we want to hike down on the other side of the mountain, so we don´t go by motorbike. Instead we reach Selo by a mix of bus, hitchiking and walking.
The vulcano Merapi (meru = mountain, api = fire) is one of the most dangerous and active vulcanos in the world. It is situated 35 km north of Yogyakarta and easy reachable for a small adventure. A friend of mine from the froghouse and I grab a tent, warm cloth, some food and water and make our way to Selo, a village situated at the foot of the mountain.
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar and the fasting month of Muslims. In the Koran is written that it is forbidden to consume food, drinks and cigarettes between sunrise and sunset. Sex and drunkenness are also prohibited. At the end of Ramadan the fast breaking feast, Eid al-fitr, is celebrated for 3 days. Together with Eid al-Adha it is the most important holiday of the Muslims.
