There are only a few places on our planet, where our civilized world is colliding with the earth's forces. Indonesia
undoubtedly belongs to those places, as nowhere else in the world human life is daring to sit on a volcano
the crowded way. An offshoot of the Pacific Ring of Fire
is transporting the seismic heartbeat literally like an artery to the doorsteps of Java, Sumatra & Co. Catastrophes with an apocalyptic dimension happened there: the explosion of lake Toba, of the volcanos Tambora and Krakatoa, as well as the seaquake and the dramatic Tsunami on December 26th 2004.
