A sad reality

I am not pleased by what I am going to say... But it must be said.
Here is a very nice place just in the back of my yard...

Nice, isn't it ? This little creek could be so peaceful ! Could be...
But have a look closer !
Here is what the water carries all along its course:

Don't misunderstand me. I don't judge. I am accusing anybody.
I even know that it have been the same, exactly the same, in my own country, years ago.
And it took a while to the people to understand that they were destroying their own land.
Creating such a mess in the environment that it cost a lot of money, effort, patience, to repair the mistakes we've done.
May the Indonesian people understand it, take us as an example to not follow,
and clean their so beautiful land...

On the way to Goa Gong

Life is everywhere. In every little corners.
In here, every little shop (how to call such places where you can buy things ?) seems a whole story for an occidental man as me.
Every face have a different story to tell but all tell the same: We are from the human race...

And finally, I'm just the witness of this...

Goa Gong

The Gong Cave, or Goa Gong.
Entering by a small entrance, I was not suspecting to find this.
For me, a cave was a cave. Stalactites and stalacmites…
But here, Nature made art.
As I was going on, more and more surprising figures, cathedrales…
Incredible stuctures of slow formated pieces of rock.
Giger woud be crazy to see that…
Let’s dream…

Note: If the place is extraordinary, it is also very hot and humide. You swet a lot in there, and all electronic equipments suffer a lot
