Jawa #1 Semeru

As explained to me in the 1990’s by President Wahid’s friend, the Sufi poet, Gus Mus, there are two geographically different cultures within Javanese culture.

There is budaya pesisir, an outward looking coastal culture, and budaya dalam, the culture of most of the people who live in awe of their island’s many magnificent mountains.

Mount Semeru, Java’s highest peak.
