March 2012, my first time visit to Indonesia, Surabaya in East Java Island to be exact, to witness one of the great nature creation, Mount Bromo. On the way to Bromo, I did stop at Sidoarjo Mud Flow site or well known as Lapindo Mud. What can I say is, massive damage has been done.
Thick smoke can be seen at the centre of the muddy lake.
On the right side is the embankment purposely built to contain the hot mud flows. The height of the embankment keep added up till today.
Scenic view towards volcanic mountain
Abandoned houses. Its easily to catch fire due to flammable gas from the muddy lake
Another view towards the center of the lake
