stolen pics from my dad's

Two photos above are the photos of Kelimutu Lake that is located in Flores island, Indonesia. Actually Kelimutu is a volcano that containing three summit crater lakes of varying colors. The color are white, green, and red. Too bad, My father only took the pic of the green one. The officer of Kelimutu National park said that the color changed by the mineral that contained in the lake triggered by volcano gas activity. I wanna visit Flores island so badly but maybe someday after I have enough money..hahahaha
If you happen to be have a chance to go to Indonesia, I recommend you to go to Flores Island because Flores island is not too far from Bali.. It takes 3 hours of flight from Bali to Maumere and from Maumere to Moni (the base town of Kelimutu) takes 3 hours by car.

Two photos above, I'm not sure whether it's one of the beaches in Bali or one of the beaches in Lombok..
 
Two photos above are the photos of Garuda Wisnu Kencana statue that is claimed ,once its finish being made, one of the highest statues in the world. The 1st photo with my dad in it is the upper part of Wisnu (Wisnu is one of the Gods in Hindu). The 2nd photo is the upper part of Garuda (Garuda is the vehicle of Wisnu and being considered as a sacred animal in Hindu).
Last time I went to Bali when I was in 9th grade. I remember that my tour guide said that the statue is made seperated. As you can see, they made the upper part of Wisnu and Garuda first than the other body part.
This is the miniature of the Garuda Wisnu Kencana statue. Once the statue is finish, It gonna look like this. So, watch out Liberty statue, You gonna have a serious competitor here..LOL

PS: to those Balinese who read this, I hope I descibe Garuda Wisnu Kencana rightly.. If not please do forgive me.. :)
