Kamu akan melihat keindahan dimanapun ketika matahari sedang terbit. Dia perlahan sedikit demi sedikit muncul ke permukaan. Sinarannya setiap harinya memberikan kejutan kejutan yang tidak bisa kita tebak. Kadang mendung kadang juga indah. Entahhlah, yang terpenting kalau lagi memotret pemandangan, pagi harii kita harus bangun atau kalau bisa ga usah tidurr malamnya 😂 . Siaang baru tidurrr. Wkwkwk.. .
Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park
I debated whether or not to post these pictures and I'll tell you why. These are the peoples of the Kayan tribe, an ethnic minority of Myanmar (Burma) who fled to Thailand when threatened by the Burmese military 30-40 years ago. I had unwittingly visited this camp as a side quest of a tour because I didn't read the fine print. To get to the point, they are known for their "long necked" women, a cultural practice that is iconic, representing extreme beauty. But in my visit to this camp I battled documenting and thusly promoting my experience as it felt inauthentic and uncomfortable, which I believe these photos demonstrate without much help from me. As a good friend put it, it seems the best way to describe the experience is cultural commodification - i.e. we use them to get our culture kicks, they use us for the menial money we give them just for being the way they are. The eldest women were expressionless and the youngest were hounded by their parents to sit and look cute. It's clear this shit has been going on for a LONG time. Like watching fish in a fish tank. I didn't like it, and I'm not proud of the pictures I took. But I wanted to post these thoughts so if you ever do make it out to places unknown - be respectful, try and relate to those who seem vastly different than you, and don't abuse their gift of culture. Will the culture go extinct if we don't play the game? I don't know - and I don't know what the right answer is to any of this. If I had to go back in time I wish I hadn't of visited and contributed to this cycle of tourism. But at the same time it allowed me to organize my thoughts and share them with you. Anyways, keep exploring and keep loving while you're doing it.

With the SADHUS 🙏🏻
These people dedicate their life for Humanity.
Holy person in Hinduism who has renounced the wordly life.
It literally means one who practises a ″sadhana″ or keenly follows a path of spiritual discipline.
Although the vast majority of sadhus are yogis, not all yogis are sadhus. The sadhu is solely dedicated to achieving mokṣa (liberation), the fourth and final aśrama (stage of life), through meditation and contemplation of Brahman.
Sadhus often wear simple clothing, such saffron-coloured clothing in Hinduism, white or nothing in Jainism, symbolising their sannyāsa (renunciation of worldly possessions). .
