Something funny happened early in the morning ;D

JC set his alarm at 3 am, cause we had to go at 4 am. When his alarm rang, he woke up Aioh and me. Actually I was confused for a while. I also set my alarm at 3 am but I didn't know why it didn't ring :-( After we were almost ready to go, he realized that he had not adjust the time. So, it was 3 am Bali time, but Surabaya time it was 2am!!!! That was why my alarm didn't ring, cause it was still 2 am :P Hahahaha....

So, we chated while we were waiting to be waken up by the hotel staff :P

We went to Pananjakan, the viewing point, by a jeep cause we had to cross the sandsea. I thought we would be the first jeep there cause we left the hotel before 4 am. But, I was wrong. There were lots of jeeps and tourists there.

So, we tried to find a position among all people who wanted to see the sunrise.

A silhouette: can you guess? :P
While we were waiting, JC was complaining about people who used flash to take pictures :P

It seemed that the sun couldn't be seen clearly, our tour guide asked us to move to another side. From there, we couldn't see the sunrise, but we could see the Tengger Caldera http://www.volcano.si.edu/world/volcano.cfm?vnum=0603-31=

Then, we went down to the sandsea. We rode horses to the foot of Bromo. From there we climbed the stairway to the top of the mountain. Climbing the stairway was tiring for me and some of the visitors. So, we had to stop to rest before we clibed again several times.

At the top of mountain, I saw the crater. It was huge and the smoke was appeared from a small crack at the middle. I sat and enjoyed the view while I were waiting for Aioh and JC. They went very far. I was satisfied enough with my position, sat and relaxed :P

I was very grateful, at last I could see Bromo http://wikitravel.org/en/Mount_Bromo ;D Last year in January, I couldn't see it because of the storm :-(
