Drop dead – Merapi 2010 experience


Really, this is how we, volunteers, sleep in STIE YKPN Yogyakarta (well a few prefer to sleep outside, they are usually the evening shift group). What a mess. And it keeps on changing every night. The piles behind us are donated clothes. Yes, this is actually the dry logistic section. On the other side of the auditorium door is the medical and bottled water logistic section, while the raw food section is in a separate room.

Me? I just moved aside a few boxes, kicked a few cigarette butts to the owners (can’t help the evil in me), rolled out my camping mattress, unfolded my sleeping bag, and dropped dead for 4-5 hours while letting few mosquitoes and other insects have their supper upon me.

You just have got to click on the image and see the labels affixed on the wall. This image is stitched from 7 individual frames to give a 180 degrees panoramic view. Again, the long exposure resulted in a relatively bright atmosphere. In reality it was almost dark.
