The day we arrived at Mt Bromo we decided to take a hike to the crater rim. about one kilometer from the summit, we heard a faint rumble as a massive cloud of ash enveloped other hikers at the rim. We could hear them scream, I became a little uneasy. We kept going and found out what happens to steamy ash clouds; they condense into mud rain! The locals couldn't stop laughing at us as we walked back.
On Tuesday June 09, 2004, two tourists were killed in a similar eruption.
