WPC – Seemed So Unlikely…


It’s only two months after the big eruption of Mt. Merapi in the year of 2006, my husband and I were visiting the affected area around 25 kms north of Yogyakarta, his hometown. What we saw seemed so unlikely… But we all know that forces of nature, even after two months, was still extreme and seemed unbelievable…

We could see the trails of pyroclastic flows that burned everything on its way and left it full of ashes. Even the huge sand barriers were totally damaged. The beautiful peak of Mt. Merapi looked partially collapsed apart, because of its continuous activities of large explosions and pyroclastic flows.
