“While watch­ing a lo­cal rock band at a bar in Ban­dung, I met Kasih, who works in a ho­tel but is a gui­tarist and singer. She is also a Batak—an eth­nic­ity from north Su­ma­tra, where

I’d been just a few months be­fore. Kasih got up on stage, joined the band to belt out some in­die an­thems, and was so good she stayed there for the rest of the set. It’s that kind of place. Head out­side the city to the hill town Ci­widey: Kawah Pu­tih (White Crater) is a sul­phurous vol­canic lake that ranks among the most ob­scure and des­o­late yet strangely beau­ti­ful places I’ve ever vis­ited.” In­sta­gram: @ad­ven­tures_in_jour­neylism.
