Resting in Peace


Another photo walk last week – to the Dutch cemetery – Ereveld Menteng Pulo. In the midst of the chaotic Kuningan neighbourhood is this oasis of calm and green. The only people around are the groundsmen, maintaining the pristine neatness of this place. The graves honor people of different religions, as does the chapel in the center of the grounds. We shuddered to see that a lot of the victims must have died barely out of their teens, in the frontlines. That’s war!

 

While we waited for a friend, there were some wildlife to shoot –

And what’s a photo walk, without stretching for ‘that best angle’?
