I’m not sure that any route will prep a runner for Bromo. Runners climb from 1840 meters to 2476. It’s a gain in altitude of more than a mile, which means breathing is harder. All of it, really, is hard.
August brought about two major holidays: Idul Adha, the day of sacrifice, and Independence Day. We wrapped up the month with a visit to Ponorogo for the Reog festival.
July was busy. We had neighborhood events, we had school events, we had Peace Corps events. We’re two weeks into classes now. Allow me to give you the rundown.
