Kelimutu is a volcano located in the centre of Flores Island, Indonesia. There are three coloured lakes at Kelimutu, i.e. Tiwu Ata Mbupu (Lake of Old People), Tiwu Nuwa Muri Koo Fai (Lake of Young Men and Maidens) and Tiwu Ata Polo (Bewitched or Enchanted Lake). Tiwu Nuwa Muri Koo Fai and Tiwu Ata Polo are separated by a shared crater wall. All the three lakes are shown on the postcard below. Roy sent me this postcard from Indonesia on 23 April 1997. What a spectacular postcard!
