Lang Island (Dutch: "Long"; modern Indonesian: Rakata Kecil or Panjang) lies in the Sunda Strait, between Java and Sumatra, in Indonesia. It is one of the Krakatoa Islands, near the famous volcano. Lang suffered only slightly in the 1883 eruption of Krakatoa; it actually grew in area from massive pumice fall, although most of the additional area washed away within several years.
The island is quite hilly.

—Zora Neale Hurston (18911960)
“Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And never brought to mind?
Well tak a cup okindness yet,
For auld lang syne.”
