I was filming in Java at Mt Bromo, with @robthecameraman, as Tenggerese families crossed the sand sea that surrounds the volcano. They were heading for the summit where they would make their annual Kasada offering to the volcano god, in thanks for the fertility of their land. Baskets of vegetables are thrown, along with the symbolic throwing of the chicken, and passing of the goat. Legend has it that this is where an ancient kings son was swallowed by the volcano as a debt that the king owed to the god. #BBCEarth #EarthOnLocation #Indonesia #Java #Volcano #Festival #Kasada
