    The day we arrived in Padang we had the afternoon off. But we basically just hung around in our nice hotelroom, because we were so tired and lazy.😅😁
    The next day we chartered a little boat and drove to 2 islands off the coast. Just to lie in the sun and snorkel a bit🌴☀🚣. A very lazy finish to this intresting and funny trip.🛫

    Today we visited the Canyon in Bukkitingi, together with a local guide. We came across about a dozen monkeys🙈 and watched them for a while.
    When we finally managed to get away from the monkeys, we had a look at the old WW2 caves. The japanes built them here im 1942.
    After that we walked through the countryside for about 2 hours with a magnificent view over the ricefields an the little villages.

    In the afternoon we had a cooking class with the same guide and his wife.😊
    We cooked and ate about 8 dishes.😜

    After 10 hours in the bus we finally arrived at our hotel. We then went out for dinner. Our choice was terrible😂. It seems like they put the food from the freezer into the microwave and then half-frozen onto our plates.🤔

    After that we watched a 2h traditional dance performance and even went onto the stage ourselves😉😊.

    We hired bicycles after breakfast and drove to a historic village, where the indiginous people of Samosir Island used to eat their prisoners. Including an english and an american missionary.

    Our guide explained us everything. From feeding the prisoner for a week, seasoning them just before they beheaded them, to eating them raw. Using Rob as his prisoner😂.

    After two hours on the bike we decided that it was way to hot to go on and went back to our hotel to exchange the bicycles with scooters😁.

    With the scooters we drove almost to the top of the island, stopping here and there to take pictures.

    Its definitly a place were i could stay a bit longer😄.

    Our hotel was in the small township of Tuktuk and had a beautiful garden where we enjoyed he afternoon.
    For dinner we went to a restaurant that besides pizza also served a lot of swiss dishes like Rösti and Älplermaggrone🇨🇭. A welcome alternative to Nasi Goreng 3x a day. 😉

    At 4 in the morning we drove from our hotel to the starting point for our volcano hike.
    For 1.5 hours we walked up the little track leading us to the summit of the volcano. In the distance we saw an active volcano erupting and shooting ash out into the dark night sky.😊
    At 6:20 just as the sun was about to crawl over the mountain range on the horizon, big clouds came in from the south and blocked our view😭😂.
