One day in Bali we at lunch at the Lakeview Restaurant which is perched on the edge of a gigantic caldera.  It erupted a long time ago.

This view shows the two smaller volcanoes which are inside the caldera. They erupted 200 – 300 years ago, causing loss of life and much property damage. Despite all the time since their eruption, the area is still black with lava. Nothing is growing there yet.
