June 9th, 2009 - Today I was to see Mount Krakatoa. Tens of thousands died when this bad boy erupted in 1883. It pretty much obliterated most of once was Krakatoa Island. Once thought dead it came back to life in 1927 and a new cone formed, Anak Krakatoa (Child of Krakatoa). I booked a ‘tour’ at my hotel but since I was the only person I got the small boat. You don't want the small boat.
Quite an auspicious beginning. Boat number two was no bigger. While they prepared my yacht I snapped a few pics of some kids in the backyard of their school. Couldn't help but put a smile on my face.
