The title of this blog is how I describe a volcano, after learning what happened in my country as far back as I could. I went to Lake Toba in North Sumatera last March. It’s the world’s largest volcano lake thanks to the eruption many years ago. I talked to friends who have been to Mount Krakatau that erupted many years ago as well. The earth temperature went down because of the magnitude of the ash sent to the atmosphere by Mount Krakatau.
In this case, ignorance is NEVER a bliss!
I am by far not an expert in this. I have no plan on becoming one either. However, coming from a country with so many active volcanoes on both big and small islands, I couldn’t help but wondering WHY. My mind is filled with thoughts, trying to find the answer by using simple ‘explanation’. I prefer that way because simplicity brings people closer instead of creating a gap because of some know-it-all attitudes.
So tell me, how do YOU describe a volcano?
