After our off the beaten path adventure in Punta Rucia and visiting Cayo Arena and the mangroves, our next stop was the province of Montecristi. This is one of the towns in the Dominican Republic that borders with Haiti. From here we would visit El Morro and Isla Cabra. LINK IN BIO.

Jaisalmer, India. Meet Raju, born in the north east of India. He decided to head west to look for a job and more opportunities and now works as a chef in a cafe in Jaisalmer. He tries to fit in but it’s difficult. Because of his religion, culture and place of birth, he’s often victim of the Indian caste system. He’s one of the nicest people I’ve met in the past year. @theworldaheadofus#theworldaheadofus#india#jaisalmer#pentax645z
Marina Beach is a natural urban beach in Chennai, India. The beach runs for a distance of 6.0 km, making it the longest natural urban beach in the country. Bathing and swimming at the Marina Beach are legally prohibited because of the dangers, as the undercurrent is very turbulent. It is one of the most crowded beaches in the country and attracts about 30,000 visitors a day during weekdays and 50,000 visitors a day during the weekends and on holidays. These guys stroll the beach trying to sell horseback rides. • @theworldaheadofus#theworldaheadofus#india#pentax645z
The (very shallow) crater lake of Mount Sibayak in Sumatra. Mt. Sibayak is a small stratovolcano overlooking the town of Berastagi. Its last eruption was more than a hundred years ago but geothermal activity in the form of steam vents and hot springs remains high on and around the volcano. The vents produce crystalline sulfur and roar like jet engines. Seepage of sulfurous gases has also caused acidic discolouration of the small lake. • LINK IN BIO for all the photos from our hike up this (tiny) volcano. • @theworldaheadofus#theworldaheadofus#indonesia#volcano#sumatra#pentax645z

Last day on Gili Trawangan I got up early enough to witness the best part of the day here. When the tourists are finished partying and instead the streets are filled with local characters going about their work. This woman was enjoying taking it all in just as I was.
