Kawah Ijen and the Indonesian lake of acid

Tuesday, 31 March, 2009

Some incredible photos of the often dangerous sulfur mining carried out at the Kawah Ijen Volcano in East Java, Indonesia, including a lake filled with water that has the same acidity as car battery solution.

Kawah Ijen is one of the most incredible and surreal places I’ve ever visited. It’s the site of a labor intensive sulfur mining operation where miners collect and carry huge loads of pure sulfur up from the crater floor along a steep, rocky path amid clouds of sulfur dioxide gas, all for the equivalent of about ten dollars a day.

Did Toads Predict the China Quake?

Toads moving en masse, and a small lake that mysteriously drained, are two bizarre events that preceded the catastrophic earthquake in China’s Sichuan province last week. Were these events some sort of natural warning of an impending tragedy?

Just before the most recent devastation in China toads swarmed across one of the bridges in the affected area. Two days before the quake thousands of toads suddenly decided to move across a bridge in Taizhou, a town in the Jiangsu province.
