Dusun Bakalan, Kecamatan Cangkringan, one of the hamlets that were devastated by lava and pyroclastic material from Merapi eruption and explosion on November 5, 2010 still in total ruins a week after. The houses were piled by sands, volcanic ashes and other materials; the smell of sulphur and dead bodies (perhaps from the cattle that were killed during disaster) was still hanging in the air. There was no sign of life, but some people, who intentionally came to witness what were left in the disaster affected hamlets.
