Weekend in Mt. Bromo Part 1

without comments

Last month we went to Mt. Bromo, an active volcano in East Java, Indonesia. After more than 3 months of hibernating , we decided that it was time to travel again. Rudel and I both enjoy travelling. We specially love to go to places where nature is involved. Being in an unfamiliar place, getting lost, eating local food, learning about different cultures and even being duped by a bad tourists guides are all part of the adventure we warmly embrace (except for the last part of course hehehe). Travelling is a form of a reset for us from our daily routine and from work.

On our way from the airport to the village of the volcano we saw this ‘Pedicab’ version of Surabaya Indonesia

Chicken Curry Bromo style as it says in the menu. It tasted like tinola and only has a hint of curry. It was sooo good! Perfect for the cold weather.
