Calm sea and beautiful panorama near Garut, West Java, Indonesia.
Yay! Another reunion trip with my high school’s gang. We decided to go somewhere near our home in Bandung and choose Santolo Beach to stay overnight. It’s a 2 hours ride crossing valleys of tea garden from Bandung to Pameungpeuk, the small town where Santolo Beach is.
There’s not to much crowd in Santolo, I don’t think I saw another tourists than us. The beach is clean and spread wide from side to side. The sea is calm, the waves ended far out from the beach, it almost feel like swimming in a lake.
There’s only like 3 or 4 inns in Santolo, it’s all cheap and clean, perfect for unemployed fresh graduate like us. It’s Indonesia, so even though it’s cheap, you’re still allowed to bargain. The perfect way to end the day in Santolo, is enjoying the fresh seafood (and also cheap) served by the local restaurant.
There are about 127 active volcanoes in Indonesia, one of the most popular ones being Mount Papandayan, located 2,665 meters above sea level in Garut, West Java. My boyfriend and I usually go hiking together so we decided to spend our long weekend holiday (three days/two nights) at Mount Papandayan.

Jungle, home, haven. The same words may apply to both city and nature. Though different they are linked. The city takes after the colors of flowers and animals; people mold their neighborhoods after the shapes of nature. Other similarities are accidental: the fun bit.
Ouagadougou is the capital of Burkina Faso. 1.6 million people live there when 20 years ago there were only 700,000; that is to say, the incredibly quick growth and the stunning density in this city shows today.
Armed with disposable cameras, a number of people affected by homelessness in London trooped out in the streets and captured life from their individual perspectives. That was in July; now, 13 photographs have been selected via public vote and will be featured on the upcoming calendar by Cafe Art, an initiative that "[showcases] artwork created by people affected by homelessness or are socially vulnerable."
