Last week I left Cambodia for Yogyakarta, Indonesia to cover a couple days of the effects of Mt. Merapi volcano. I've actually never seen a volcano. Alive. And breathing. Was fascinating. NPR selected several of my images for their volcano coverage, where you can read the story and view slideshow here: waiting for the sky to fall
And you can see much more of volcano images on my archive (2pgs): Mt. Merapi
Burn victims continue to die at least once a day...the city hospital's ICU unit is overwhelmed with the number of patients. Some of which they are not quite sure how to treat because of internal burns from inhaling hot toxic gas and ash. While farmers continue to harvest with the looming volcano behind them billowing black and grey smoke.
