Just a two-days trip to Gili Air.

I had one of the most impressive sunsets and one of the most beautiful moonrises ever on this island.

I enjoyed a nightdive and another two dives around the Gilis. But- and that's a big but- I was really shocked to see such a massive destruction caused by dynamite fishing done to the reefs there. They must have been spectacular and beautiful. But now - reduced to a wasteland. Yes, there were great spots I have seen, and thats where most of the pictures come from. But the impression of the ruins of a once beautiful reef overlays that.

September 1, 2012 A huge wildfire on the volcano. Helicopters could not operate ther, so it had to be fought by pure manpower. Brave guys.
