I will just let the pictures do the talking.
|The sunrise before my climb up Mount Rinjani|
|The mountain... a loooong way up!|
|Just before lunch.. it was scorching hot!|
|The team! Couldnt do it without them carrying all my bags!|
|A friend who conquered the summit. I didn't, afraid of injuring my knee further.|
|A man performing the ablution|
|In the middle of the volcano- The Danau|
|Having lunch after our short but challenging descend of Rim 1 (of the volcanic crater)|
|The view on the way up Rim 2|
|The Rinjani with Anak Rinjani (the smaller volcano) in the middle of the lake/ danau|
|On ascending the second Rim (Rim 2)|
|Me at Rim 2 of Rinjani with Mount Agung (in Bali) on the background|
|A tourist had a fall in Gua Susu, fracrured her pelvis. . She was being carried up and down the mountain...|
I just don't know how the men who carried her did it... surely not an easy task!
|Me on top of Rinjani and Mount Agung behind me|
|At last! I was in agony all the 12km way down the mountain with an injured knee..|
We left Lombok Island and off to Gili Trawangan Island to wind down after the climb....
|The sunset at Gili Trawangan|
|A favourite mode of transport in Gili Trawangan|
|I miss this Ikan Mujahir or was it Jawahir and lalapan.. sangat sedap!|
After 2 days of rest, we left Gili and went back to Lombok to catch our flight home sweet home....
|At last... we found Masakan Padang... we finished almost ALL of these!|
|Had a nice time winding down after the climb here at Lombok Island|
Too busy and too tired nowadays and busier days ahead of me...
Will be better once December comes, InsyaAllah...
I am undergoing some physiotherapy now for pain relief and I am already eyeing for a running event in January 2014, hopefully I can make it for that... AMIN!
