UNPUBLISHED NOT EXHIBITED
Hello, The only time it is possible to see Merapi well is in the very early morning if it is fairly clear. By about 8:30 it is getting obsured by the haze. It is also a bit dangerous due to the sudden slides of mud and rock that travel down and into Yogyakarta. About an hour away. A slide had happened the day before.
We got past the police baracades. So did a few residents.
I found a few residents including the granddaughter of the man appointed by the Sultan to guard and protect Merapi. He died in the eruption. . Just wanted you to see what I am doing . Still searching for the next story. In the meantime I keep working. Try to get better at bringing in something interesting quickly.
