Hangin’ around.

One of the most remarkable things about hangin’ with the macaques was the easily distinguishable age groups: The elders were calm and observant, the teenagers were doing the most gravity-defying stunts ever (because teenagers are invincible!), and the babies were testing their limits…estimating whether or not certain branches could hold their weight, zipping around, up trees, down trees, back and forth…and falling - A LOT. It was hilarious and endearing.

When I look at this photo, I like to think that we were being escorted through the village by our little friend in the turquoise pyjamas (cuuuute!). In reality, his house was down the road from our homestay, lol. I wonder what it’s like to be this kid, going about my daily life with a clear water/black sand beach within close walking distance, and a gorgeous volcano in sight. 

This village is definitely poor by western standards. Take heed to the notion that western “standards” can leave you with a skewed perception of what true wealth is.

A few moments before a fisherman from the Batu Putih village heads out to sea for an evening run. My first black sand beach, thanks to lava fragments from the lovely volcanoes nearby.

As we had reached the top of the steep, rocky incline, we thought we were close to the crater…nope, lol! Greeted by a HUGE valley of volcanic rock. This volcano erupted last September, and was still quite active. The air was thick with sulfur, but the view of Mount Lokon was breathtaking (or was that my asthma?).
