The Ruins

It’s my late entry for Nostalgia. Since it would be the last entry for this meme, I wouldn’t miss it. I still have some captures that I haven’t shared; I guess I can share here as my last Nostalgia post.

The first eruption of this mud volcano (Sidoarjo, East Java, Indonesia) occurred at May, 2006. This under ground mud volcano is commonly called as the Sidoarjo mud flow or Lapindo mud. It’s one of the biggest mud volcanoes in the world that created by the blowout of a natural gas well drilled by PT. Lapindo Brantas, although the company officials argued that it’s caused by a distant earthquake.

It’s a big disaster that has affected many people’s life around the area of 1.500 ha. This mud volcano located near the city that full of people, villages, houses, and factories; you can imagine how huge the effect is!

Seeing the ruins really made me sad. Until now, there’s still a controversy about the real cause; the people around who suffered the most are still screaming for justice.

The pictures made me sad too. But despite the many downfalls, it's amazing how human nature teaches us how to get back up. Take care lina.

Oh my goodness! This reminds me of the Cagsawa ruins in the Philippines caused by the Mayon Volcano eruption.
