... only to learn a *********** in Indonesian pride and haggling. Our next stop was Surabaya, about 8 hours away from Banyuwangi. The end of Ramadan brings with it a holiday period, where everyone travels around the country. The trains were fully booked for a week, we were told, so the bus was our only option. We were hoping we could get onto a nice, airconditioned "bisnis" or "eksekutif" bus. A dodgy guy came and told us that for 150 000 rupiah we could go with ...

We sat around at the top for a bit, waiting for sunset... but we soon realised that it was way too cloudy to see anything and decided to start to descend into the crater to try and warm up.
