Indonesia, "Many religions in PEACE", 2015


Maybe someday people from all religions will live together in PEACE. For now it sounds like a dream. 

In Indonesia you can believe in it, while you hear the prayers of Muslims walking in a Buddhist Temple a few minutes away from a Hindu temple and smile to a local Christian.

Pura Puncak Penulisan
The highest temple in Bali was magical with the cool mist settling down in dusk.   


The Gili Islands are an archipelago of three small islands — Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air — just off the northwest coast of Lombok. We went to Trawangan and stayed in a quiet resort with the friendliest staff. Biking around the island was fun and easy. We wondered why the locals did not care about the trash piles outside of the resort.


Uluwatu Temple is a Balinese sea temple built on cliffs. We watched a traditional Kecak dance at the temple.


Java
Prambanan is a Hindu temple in Java built in the 9th century

Mt Merapi
Mount Merapi is an active volcano located on the border between Central Java and Yogyakarta. It is the most active volcano in Indonesia and has erupted regularly since 1548.



Abandoned houses of the people who had to evacuate during the eruptions in 2010 occupied now with silence.


Bike tour was amazing with greetings from every local house


Traditional pigeon race among locals taken pretty seriously


Borobudur is a 9th-century Mahayana Buddhist Temple.

The mist travels the
village, soft sunlight seeping
through the stone Stupas

Belisa
Muslim girls in need of practicing their English hesitates at first to approach us.
