It’s been almost a month since the last time I wrote anything here. I guess I got wrapped up in day-to-day activities and didn’t really give them importance, so I skipped writing about them. However, it is time to catch up and try to remember what has happened this past month. These are just highlights, since my memory is already blurry.

To wrap things up, one of the craters around Mount Rinjani began erupting about a week ago. Last week Mataram was dusty and there were ashes floating in the air. A couple of people told me that I need to wear glasses and a face mask to go outside, since the particles in the air could cause respiratory problems and irritate the eyes. I could feel the ashes on my skin and my teeth, even though we are not really that close to Rinjani. Then, the rain came and settled the dust a little. The sky is overcast and many flights have been cancelled, but life goes on. Things just seem to get more and more interesting each day.
