Mount Bromo, Indonesia (Part I)

Mount Bromo was the last leg of my first ever Indonesian adventure with Zu and friends. Prior to this, I have never been to Indonesia so I have to thank Zu for introducing me to mountain trekking (2 volcanoes at that) as well.

Compared to Ijen, Mount Bromo is a relative breeze climbing up the crater. Having had most of its crater blown off by relatively recent eruptions helps.
