Medan Trip (3 June -6 June 2012)
Hah wondering what is horas- it's just like 'apa khabar' (malay) or 'hello'.
It was a good chance to hang out with my colleagues after spending months and months working. Our tour guide, Adrial- such a nice and friendly guy. We had no problem in language since we understand Indonesian language, after all Malay language is not much different.
After breakfast we were heading to Parapat about five and half hours from Polonia Airport. Stopped for breakfast since we reached there at 9 am (Indonesian time). It's just one hour different from Malaysian Time.
I noticed all the drivers there like honking and..... oh GOD lots of honking.
We realized soon that this was very common here and the drivers are very skillful, so we were fairly relaxed throughout the journey.
First stop was a patent shop selling teng teng, ting ting, tong tong....
ha ha really funny ....actually selling all kind of candies...yummy you know:)
After a long journey, we reached Parapat
