And here is another pic of the Catholic Church, taken from further down the road, facing north.

This pic was taken from exactly in front of my wife's parents home, where she grew up. While I don't stay there when I'm visiting, my wife owns it.

They tore down paradise and put up telephone and electric poles....
The church was on the edge of what appears to be a jungle...progress!
Very interesting contrast, Stray.

This is Soputan, a volcano about 20 miles to the southwest of where I stay. Earlier in the day my nephew climbed up to about where you see the clouds. I'll post some pics of that climb sometime soon. I took this pic from a nearby village from a house where government volcano guys keep an eye on it. It has erupted a number of times over the last decade, last time January 2015.

And speaking of volcanos... here's one I viewed while I was in Bali...

Mount Batur volcano. Last erupted in 2000. It is considered Bali’s most active volcano, and one of the most active volcanoes in Indonesia. Mount Batur is what volcanologists refer to as a “double caldera”, meaning it is one crater inside another crater. Photo taken 15 December 2016.

Absolutely fascinating. Love the picture of Soputan with the clouds hanging like a necklace around it. Just beautiful.

Here's an up-close look at the clouds... this was taken somewhere up along the ridge at the far right of the above photo of Soputan. About the highest we got.

LOL.

You have no idea how good that cold beer(s) was. To be fair, in the tourist area where the beach is, it's very easy to get a cold beer. This pic was taken late afternoon maybe 6 PM or so and I had been in the "back country" since breakfast, and it ain't so easy to find a cold beer. 90 degrees... 90% humidity all day... you can imagine how good this (these) went down
