A country with 129 active volcanoes; what can safety mean there? Something a lot more easy to loose and worthy of treasuring.
JAKARTA, Indonesia -- Red-hot lava began flowing from the crater of Indonesia's rumbling volcano Mount Merapi early Thursday as vulcanologists warned residents an eruption may be imminent.
It last erupted in 1994, sending out a searing cloud of gas that burned 60 people to death. More here.

Earlier yesterday, farmers journeyed high up Merapi’s slopes collecting grass for cows and children kicked footballs - both within a six kilometre (3.7 mile) radius zone declared off-limits when the mountain was placed on its highest alert Saturday.
"There is nothing to worry about here," said Warkijho, a 55-year-old farmer who has refused to leave.
