We arrived in the town of Banyuwangi yesterday afternoon, ate some mie goreng and then went to sleep at 7pm in preparation for our early morning trek to Mount Ijen and the Ijen Crater (early morning meaning trek start time of 3am, after two hours of driving to the mountain in a jeep!)

Since we left long before the sun came up, the temperature was nice and low, although it was difficult to walk with only the moon’s light and a head torch at times! I actually really enjoyed myself (which is good as we are trekking up Mount Bromo in a day’s time) despite the horrendous time of day and how terrible the sulphur mine smelled!
