Re: Krakatoa East Of Java

Well, yeah. And no. Krakatoa is more or less the Portuguese spelling of it, and the Indonesian name is Krakatau, but technically if you go far enough east of Java, you would end up at (now anak-)Krakatau. You'd hit Zanzibar before that actually.

It's not helpful when giving people directions though.

(Oh, and there is also a Zanzibar in the greater Jakarta region.)
