Arrived at night so couldn't see much except the rather disturbing forest fires on the mountain side. Then next morning we got in to a jeep, across the sea of sand and then waited (temp only 4 degrees!) at the top of a mountain for the sun to rise....
Spellbinding.... Gradually saw light cast upon the landscape beneath us, awesome - would gladly have got up at 1am to se it! (as one crazy French bloke did (he walked!)) However Morgan (French Fella) got a viewpoint all to himself, whereas we were in the midst of tourist frenzy, must have been about 25 tourists there - well more than anywhere we've been since Taman Negara.
Then we descended in to the valley, pursued by men on horseback, before we walked up Bromo Mountain - views from here werent great and the sulphur got a bit overwhelming.... And still only 7 o clock!!
