Happy Monday, happy new week to all! How’s your weekend? I went no where, just stayed at home as I was not in good health; but I’m much better today. I have no fever anymore.
I still feel a little headache, but it’s not annoying. For Blue Monday this week, I’ll share my captures of sellers around the Bromo Mountain (East Java, Indonesia). Only people from the local tribe named Tengger who are allowed to earn a living from this tourist destination by renting horses, selling stuffs, etc. Tengger people also have responsibility to keep the mountain.

For residents of Bromo (Tengger tribe), Mount Bromo believed to be a sacred mountain. Once a year, they hold the ceremony Tengger Yadnya Kasada or Kasodo. The ceremony held at a temple located at the foot of Mount Bromo and proceed north to the top of Mount Bromo. It starts at midnight to early morning -every full moon around 14 or 15 in Kasodo (tenth) according to the Javanese calendar. This year, 2014, the Kasodo ceremony was already held at 11th August.
