    Banda Aceh

    Koupi hrebinku moje uspesna "to do" mise v podstate skoncila. Najit obchod s baterkami nebo moskito repelentem byl nadlidsky ukol. O vymene NZD na IDR vubec nemluve. Pul dne jsme behali od jednoho money changera k druhemu, od banky k bance, abych to nakonec vzdala, smirila se s desnym smennym kurzem a odpornym poplatkem a zamirila do bankomatu. Kde jsem si veleuspesne zablokovala jednu kartu a nakonec byla z druhe schopna vytahnout jen 2,5 milionu, coz bylo absolutne nejvic, co slo z masiny vymamit. No super :-(.
    Dostat se do Grand Mosque byl taky proces. V kuklux klan habitech bylo vedro jak s...a. Celou dobu nas pronasledovala horda deticek a porad se s nami chtel nekdo fotit. No evidentne jedini turisti v celem sirem meste. A dovnitr se stejne nesmelo.
    Pak si Tony rozbil zabku a nechal si ji za dolar na ulici spravit. A ja jsem si koupila zele, co jsem chtela dlouho ochutnat, a pak ho vyhodila (zas tak spatne nebylo no :-)).
    V roce 2004 srovnalo mesto (a dalsi lokality napric jihovychodni Asii) se zemi zemetreseni o sile 9,1 stupne a nasledna tsunami. Vlny tu pry dosahovaly az do vysky 18 metru. Skoda, ze muzeum (vstup zdarma, v patek od 12 do 2 zavreno - jako ostatne uplne vse - kvuli tradicni modlitbe, hm) venovane teto udalosti a jejim obetem nedokazali zpracovat lip. Nekvalitni fotky, hora gramatickych chyb, amaterismus nejvyssiho stupne a bohuzel nevyuzita prilezitost. Ktera pada i na hlavu zemim, co muzeum a pamatnik v nedalekem parku (a samozrejme humanitarni pomoc) sponzorovaly. Vcetne CR. Priste prosim lepe pohlidat.
    Byli jsme uchozeni k smrti, a tak jsme se zpet do Siwak hotelu svezli tuk-tukem, v podstate motorizovanou riksou. Docela sranda. Ale ne uplne levna - 35 000 :-(. Tony neumi smlouvat, beeee :-/.

    Banda Aceh, Indonesia

    August 24, 2016 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    One night stopover on my way to meet up with the ol' ball and chain! Joking, can't wait to see her! Applied for my visa extension which was actually relatively painless and my hostel owner really helped me out I'm a lot (recommend the Wisma Tsacita to anyone staying in BA) so a productive day 👍 the city itself seems in an evolution stage which has aspects of a "modern" city but also retains some of what I'd expected to see (like in Medan) although I didn't see lots of the city as it was pouring with rain and most of what I saw was from sidecar of a motorbike. The contrast of buildings is likely due to the massive rebuilding that took place after the tsunami, as awful as that kind of destruction is, it gives a humans a platform on which to build again, which doesn't have to be the same as what came before...Read more
