The Beauty and the Beast


Indonesia is known as the “ring of fire”, and is regularly affected by earthquakes, volcano eruptions and tsunamis. Yet the Ring of Fire does not only bring death and destruction.

Tourists visit destroyed villages or lie with all-inclusive cocktails in the sun on tsunami-endangered beaches.
