A few weekends ago, I made a trip to Bandung, the capital of West Java. This is the heart of Sundanese Indonesia, the second largest ethnic group in Indonesia after the Javanese. Bandung was a great escape – a beautiful city in a wonderful mountain location that I hope to return to someday soon.

A group of friendly, French speaking CSers also invited me to up to Tangkuban Perahu, a volcano in the mountains above Bandung – my first time exploring real nature. There, you are free to walk in and around the sulfuric ponds – they’d never let you do this in America.
