June 2011 - A gapura (welcome sign) of a village. The village itself has been wiped off the map during the eruption of the Mount Merapi volcano. Images of the aftermath of the most recent eruption of the Mount Merapi volcano in central Java, late October 2010. The enormous destruction in the area of Kinahrejo and Kali Kuning can clearly be seen on these pictures. Reconstruction of this once green forested area will take many years, although some resilient villagers have taken the first steps already.
