Pirated hard copy books


In Indonesia it's almost impossible to order new books, here you order a copy from a book you like from your friends or found in the library. I just received mine, ordered at Kunci. You can order it in any way, with or without color, hardcover or softcover, with or without metal corners, with or without ribbon, with or without headband etc. Mine are plane and cut together.

destruction by volcano Merapi


The village Kinahrejo is the nearest village from the volcano Merapi, it's 4 kilometers away from the peak. Afther the Eruption of 26 October 2010 the village is completely swept away. It was home to Mbah Maridjan, the spiritual "guardian" of the mountain appointed by the sultan of Yogyakarta. A lot of people  believe he had magical powers. He refused to evacuate prior to the eruption, telling a friend that he could not leave because he had a responsibility. More than 300 people where killed. Now the area attracts tourists who come to see the destruction. It must be strange, selling eruption videos from a disaster that killed your friends and life.
