WORLDWIDE | Monday, 23 April 2012 | Views [170] | Scholarship Entry

this noon was so hot. a nice day and the sky was so blue.

sometimes the wind blowed, but it just dry wind. the car rapid

slowly on ASPAL road. in the right side and left side there are

many field which has green color, the several of it almost has

yellow color. it was so far from central city of jogjakarta,

central java. I would visit mount merapi. of course, I wanted to

see the condition of nature surrounding merapi after eruption in

the last of 2012. the biggest eruption than can be death as big

as 28 people include person who was keeping merapi , mbah


the road was not crowded, sometimes there was a tourist's car

which run slowly. Jogjakarta already as known well with the best

scenery. the best scenery which could decrease badmood. finally

I already come to the tourism object, Mount Merapi.the condition

of those place was totally different before the eruption that

have been happen.

after that I climbed into the top, I bought the ticket and

entered to those place. I felt so shock about the scenery around

those place because the effect of eruption damaged everything in

there.it was different before the eruption that those place had

the beautiful and green place but nowdays those place has

changed. the scenery has showed to us as the visitors what the

biggest eruption has been happen in this place. there were many

broken building that be scattered around, the tree was fall

down in the ground and the plants were dead. the leave was fall

that had brown color. part of them looked like burning.the road

has been covered by sand and dust.and there were many crack in

he road.

then I walked to water fall and Hope that could found something

which made this place didn't look so dry.but unfortunetely, the

water fall also was dry.there was only less water which still

flown.beside that there was just stone which scattered around

and broken stairs.
