Travelling from Solo City, we hired a couple of sampans to take us out onto Lake Rawa Pening right at the break of dawn. The name Rawa Pening literally means “clear swamp”. Its clear waters provided beautiful reflections of the surrounding area including views of the neighbouring Mount Merapi, an active volcano that erupted as recently as in 2006. The boatman we hired posed gamely for us by casting his fishing net into the clear waters. Rapid clicking of camera shutters followed his beautifully balanced poise and action.
