Serving Breakfast at Mount Rinjani

7:30am, 14 June 2012. A day after my arduous ascent to the summit of Mount Rinjani. Second and last day at the crater rim of this active volcano. Alvin was already out in the cold helping our porter with our breakfast whilst the rest of us refused to part with the warmth and comfort of our tents. I peeped out of my tent and the unusual shadow-puppetry nature of their silhouettes caught my attention. I marveled over the aesthetics as they went about their candid demeanor amid such breathtaking setting, and in spite of the personal histories we were writing for ourselves on this memorable trip.

Location: Mount Rinjani, Lombok, Indonesia
