Day 7

Lombok

Today was crazy I went to Mt. Rinjani. It’s an active volcano, and it’s the third largest volcano in Indonesia. It was so cool! And at the base of the volcano is Crater Lake…this lake is a destination that thousands of pilgrims visit and bring offerings to place in the water, and then they bath in the water because the hot springs are believed to be able to cure diseases. I thought that was pretty neat, and I took so many pictures, the view was spectacular, I had done a little research on www.rinjaniexplorer.com and saw some pictures on there, and they do no justice to actually seeing it! After spending a good portion of the day at the volcano I was starving so I decided to go out for a huge meal. I ordered nasi campur which one of the girls that I had met at the dreamland highly recommended; it was boiled rice with a side of meat and a side of veggies, my plate was heaping and it was absolutely amazing I could hardly even finish half. And my waitress lady was so friendly… although I found out that you don’t leave tips here, I must say I felt bad.
