from which every now and again ahuge, dense column of greyish smoke escapes. In two hours Batoe (2878 ft. a.S.) is reached, where the visitor takes another trap. The road from Batoe to Poedjon has many curves and grades. Just ahead is the steep wall of the Radjeg-wesi (iron fence) between the Kawi and the And- View of a brooklet' jasmara Mountains. At every bend in the road the eye is caught by new, wonderful panoramas of which Mt. Smeroe with its stately rising smoke column is the point de mire.
At the villa "Petite Suisse" the road straightens out and a few minutes later the trap halts in the large garden of the Hotel Poedjon, at 3662 feet above sea level. This is a good up-country hotel, built on the pavilion system, and is frequently visited by Sourabayan families during the holidays.
