We depart from Malang to Pujon in evening. While we enter Pujon, it still there many people and many social stand. But we decide not to distribute in Pujon because in that area already full with help, we continue the journey, we go to Ngantang, 23 Km from Kelud mountain. After pass the Pujon, we across the hill, the condition begin to dark. There’s no energy and light again, just light from our car. Beside us, is the river, there is landslide in front of us. We drove very carefully. After passes the hill, we enter the place and area with very silent.
