Raja Ampat. Fallen heaven in the eastern half of the land, on golden earth. With a group of islands that lie horizontally and neatly. The blue waters mixed with Tosca green are very soothing to the eyes. On this island, there are 1,397 species of fish, 603 species of coral reefs, 700 species of mollusks. Please note that 75% of coral species in the world coexist on this island with other beautiful sea creatures. The archipelago which falls on the northwest coast of Papua is often referred to as the heart of the coral triangle, an area covering the northern part of Australia, the Philippines, Indonesia, and Papua New Guinea which contains the highest diversity of coral reefs in the world.

A red mega is painted on the expanse of the West Papua sky, accompanied by a few black silhouettes slowly eroding the red mega. Not long after that, the king of the night came to meet the territory of East Indonesia. The commander of the heavens, the sun, has said goodbye to go away temporarily. Without anyone knowing whether tomorrow he will incise his rays again or not. On a quiet night, there was only the sound of crickets and splashing water, I closed my eyes enjoying, feeling, and feeling deeply every touch and the breeze of the upstream east wind and the mosquito net next door that promises peace of mind. Created from two coconut trees where the leaves sway and the trunk still stands vertically.

The biases of light and the twinkling of morning decorate the black canvas that clings to the sky. Plus the beautiful Suri full moon accompanied by his shadow on the lips of the water. Nun in the middle of the beach has sailed a simple boat. I noticed how the boat was able to anchor its way to the sea surface beautifully without the slightest trace of ripples. Hose, a pair of my eyes feel heavy drowsiness. I chose to rest in the tent waiting to unravel the mystery of tomorrow. Likewise with other tourists. They fell asleep and were active in their respective sleeping flowers until dawn. Long before that, I had planned to dive in the dive spot on the island of Salawati, one of the big islands in Raja Ampat.

Diving with my swimming skills. I can't wait to greet the inhabitants of the Raja Ampat sea. Starting to explore the seabed, I saw Nemo fish running around hiding among the anemone tentacles. Like a kid playing hide-and-seek. In addition, a group of schooling fish with their distinctive natural paintings in the blue and white rainbow are maneuvering against the water currents to avoid eating a manta fish. The longer it gets deeper the more beautiful. A very beautiful rainbow fish was dancing. Coral reef with millions of colors planted firmly. Dozens of fish species enter from the sea sugar in the sea troughs. I greeted a tiny fish, a goby fish of the Evoita Raja type. All seemed to be sedating not to go to the mainland.

Exploring the island of Salawati, which is located in the Raja Ampat archipelago, is endless. Not wanting to be immersed in the hypnosis of the heavenly realm, I was forced to make a farewell with the tiny and beautiful ocean. After changing my clothes, I sat on the edge of the deck contemplating the greatness of the universal emperor, the maharaja, the Rabb of the universe. Gratitude crept into the millions of pieces of other positive feelings. It is an honor to be born in an island country with diamonds and gold. Like an axiom that no longer needs to be proven true.
