Merapi & Prambanan

After a couple days collecting information around Jogja, we took a scooter for the day to reach the base of Merapi, Indonesia's most active volcano. Hot ash from its 2010 eruptions burned and suffocated hundreds who'd decided at some point to settle on its slopes. We hiked to one of the destroyed villages then sped south through terraced rice paddies to reach the ninth-century Hindu ruins of Prambanan. We almost beat the rain on the ride home.
