The Milky Way from Lauran
We happened to have a power outage on several evenings in Lauran. During the early outage, I took the camera and the tripod out since I could see a hint of the Milky Way while we were on our walk home, while the power was still up. I found out that I could see the Milky Way much better while setting up the camera. It was quite cloudy and windy, so some clouds was obscuring the scene. It took several tries. I finally got the shot and it was from 6 foot (2 meters) in front of the house we were staying. It was one of many beautiful moments we had during our stay.

Sunset at Port of Saumlaki
The group I was traveling with graciously enough to let me scout for a good location to make sunset photos. We got here on day 3. So, I didn't want to waist their time further and disappoint them. That is also my motivation to make decent photo out of the opportunity.

I did take some photos on previous locations, but it didn't turn out great. Ironically, I didn't bring the tripod a long. It was a long day. Started with chasing the sunrise, walked around the village, the hike after lunch, and eventually the sunset. We closed the day with a birthday party. Oh, parties don't start until after 8 or 9 pm there.

Crabby Dinner
While picking and working on the photos from the trip, a lot of memories came to the surface again. Prior to the trip, I thought what we would do with a week in the village. In the end, we all wished that we could stay longer. A week was not nearly enough.
One of many things I did enjoy was seafood. They were bigger and cheaper there compared to the ones we can access here, including these crabs.
The crabs were pretty big. The largest one was almost doubled the size of my palm. I wouldn't even attempt to put any of my digits near it.

Faithfully Beautiful
A different day, a different sunrise. It was on the same beach, but not exactly the same location as the previous day. It was beautiful regardless. I came a bit late, so we could go to the beach together as a group. I still amazed by the view.

Sunrise in Lauran
I tried to be by the beach every morning for the sunrise, no matter what time I hit the sack. I was able to do that, even until the very last day of our stay - the departure day. There was a day that I had only a couple hours of sleep and I took no naps throughout the trip.

The sunrises were beautiful, except for the last three days of the trip. Thick clouds covered the horizon, so I could not see the sun rising from the ocean.

I took an overnight trip to Bandung with my sister and her husband. We hiked up to the top of this big hill before sunrise. The view of Bandung and Lembang was amazing from up there. This is the view of Lembang before the sun came up behind the hilly horizon.
