June 2011 - Looking back at the makeshift observation point. From this point you can see large areas of the area that has been hit. 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.
