Papua New Guinea / 巴布亚新几内亚
Rabaul Vocano

到达巴布亚新几内亚拉堡尔的当天,碰上火山爆发。火山口的烟雾袅袅而升,随气流漂泊。隔着远远的可以闻到硫磺味道。火山口附近寸草不生,灰尘覆盖了海滩。靠近火山口的地方,气温逐渐上升,当你感觉脚下的土地可以蒸熟鸡蛋的那一刻,便是停止前行的时候。因为火山的活动,海湾的水都是温热的。拉堡尔不仅有火山,有海湾。拉堡尔是一个贫穷的地方,住民生活在大山里,背靠着山丘与火山。这些居民,也成为了这里的风景线。

The day I arrived Rabaul in Papua New Guinea, the volcano started to becoming active. With the smokes coming out from the volcano, there was a great scene to be seen. A local guide took several tourists including me going toward the nearer of the active vocano. You know you need to stop when you feel the temperature underneath your feet started to raise to the point that an egg can be boiled. Nevertheless, the bay around the vocano is very hot that you dare to test the temperature using your bare hand. In Rabaul, it is not only the natural scenery that interested me. People here were poor, living by the mountains and volcano, but jointly, they became part of the scenery.
