Where I stayed
After the sunrise, we went by jeep down into the crater itself, and then walked to the base of Bromo. Someone, at some point, thoughtfully put 253 steps up to the top of Bromo itself. That way, I, and all the grannies from the coach tour could wheeze our way up to the top. Not just from lack of excercise though (in my own defense!) but the sulphur-rich ashy smoke that we had to breath. By the time I made it to the top I was wishing that I hadn't. Malcolm stayed up to have a walk about the rim, but I headed back down pretty sharpish. At least I didn't play the complete lazy tourist and take a pony ride up from the car park!
After our lovely week at the beach, it was a bit of a shock to our systems to be in the cold, cold weather. For the sunrise, we had to steal the blankets from our bed in our hotel to keep warm!
Even if the weather wasn't perfect, it still was a really amazing thing to see. Next stop Yogyakarta!
