We like to think of ourselves as morning people. Up before 8:00 AM is the norm for us in Southern California, particularly when you tend to an always-hungry cat like we do! But when traveling in East Java, 8:00 AM simply won’t cut it. If you are trying to catch the sunrise over Mount Bromo, or have a two-hour hike ahead of you to get to the very edge of a volcanic crater, you’d better set your alarm for much earlier, say perhaps 3:30 AM!
"OMG!" as we would later teach our sexagenarian guide Herman!
