My friend Abbie and I recently traveled to West Java to give plenary speeches. We made a long weekend of it so we could explore the area around Bandung, including a day to visit some nearby volcanic craters at Tangkuban Prahu. We had a pretty perfect day. No major problems taking public transportation 40 km or so to the park, gorgeous weather just the right temp for a day hike, little to no crowds at the craters, beautiful scenery and fresh air. Plus the volcanoes themselves were awesome: rugged and fuming and rocky and sulphurous, filled with turquoise lakes and bubbling hot springs. We both agreed it was a good day in Indo.
