Tangkuban Perahu is an active volcano that is about a two hours’ drive from where I live. It is about 30km north of Bandung, and it is a hub for local merchants. The shot above is of all of the shops, both retail and food, that line the northernmost part of the trail. There are at least five times as many shops on the total site, but this shot offered the best vantage point of the shops and trail.
I shot this from the window of the bus as I traveled from Jakarta to Bandung. We, my family and friends, went to Bandung for three reasons: outlet shopping, viewing a live volcano, and watching an angklung performance. On the way up, we passed a number of rest stops, but this one came with its own masjid, or mosque. Very beautiful, for a rest stop.
Ooh, it’s nearly the end of Friday here, but it’s just beginning to be Friday where so many of my friends and family live. For Photo Friday, here’s a little reflection from my life.
If you’ve seen Mr. Bean then you know he’s unpredictable, but today he showed up in Jakarta.
Okay, so that’s not entirely true, but the mall attached to our school opened, officially, today and one of the anchor stores, Debenham’s, decorated with Mini Coopers and, apparently, Mr. Bean.
It’s definitely the weirdest school situation with which I’ve been involved.
