Blue Lagoons, green jungles, and somewhat greener campers

Thursday, April 2nd, 2015

I spent the weekend in Sendang Biru(supposedly
translates as Blue Lagoon)
It’s a area near Malang … about five hours drive
from Surabaya, a 20 minute boat ride,Arrivingand then a fairly
rough one hour walk.All ashore
I hadn’t carried a water bottle within easy reach and after a good start I was soon winded and de-hydrated.
The jungle is a humid hell-hole if you aren’t prepared. I all but crawled the last few 100 metres down to the beach. I quickly re-hydrated and gobbled a couple of aspirin.
Blue LagoonThe lagoon was beautiful. Blue-green water, surrounded
by lushly overgrown coral walls. A large opening
allowed a steady surf to enter and replenish the
Hole in the wall
Just outside the lagoon
Oddly the lagoon is subject to tides; and the
high level we arrived at became a shallow wading pool
just before dusk.
Just outside the lagoon ...don't look down
Emily didn’t make the trip.
Once she found out we’d be camping without prepared
toilet facilities she begged off.
So it was myself and four other teachers, later joined
by a slightly larger group of teachers from other

Drinking, small talk and late-night swimming ensued.
Generally a pretty good time.
Sunday afternoon we hiked out again. Minus much of
the weight we had brought in. We packed out five bags
of garbage – two of which were beer cans, coke and two
vodka bottles.
I had been to the area in `99, but never to the lagoon.
It’s worth the trip.

All the best,Wayne

Privatization of Water

Thursday, December 25th, 2014
As we allow individuals and private entities to control resources, we bring forward the day we will have little or no access. This is an obscenity. The misuse of public trust and resources by individuals and corporations is a world-wide and ongoing ... [Continue reading this entry]

Water … a basic human right

Monday, August 11th, 2014
Clean water is a basic human right. Everyone knows that and only an absolute moron would disagree. Our knowledge doesn't explain why water sources continue to dry up and water prices continue to climb. This site ... [Continue reading this entry]
