DAY 71: MEDAN CRAZY MEDAN
Landed yesterday at Medan airport, a feeling of excitement when I realize I was the only white guy in the whole plane, everybody looking at me with surprise and curiosity jejeje
The arrival has been great, very dramatic scenery even to somebody that has been travelling for 2 and a half months through SE Asia, holes in the road everywhere, even huge ones on the walkways which you have to hop between them, so dirty and ugly that it makes you feel so alive.
Also this is packed packed packed with mosquitoes, and after a conversation with an american guy who owns a guest house at Pulau Nias (great surfing in this island ) he has made me aware that islands are packed packed packed with malaria and cities are packed packed packed with dengue. After this comfortable comments I am now wearing long trousers and I have bought a long sleeve shirt to keep them away from biting, also bought some more mosquito repellent for my body and also for the room, tomorrow I will also use permitrina (some hardcore mosquito repellent for clothes) for all my clothes,cant do it now as I am on the move.
The hotel is quite disgusting, rotten smell, bathroom stinks, and I had to bargain hard for having a room with a shower inclusive…yesterday night I think somebody raped a kid and I think in the morning he was raped again as I was hearing rythmic screams which I couldn’t distinguished if they were of pain or of pleasure, or both at the same time, also at 4 o’clock in the morning I was woken up and kept awake until 04:50 with the Koran from the mosque just in front of the guest house. Guys, this was hardcore singing, I think they were going to blow the top off the mosque as it was so so so loud…waaweawaAWAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHsaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.Indonesia is the biggest cmuslim country in the world, with the biggest population and they are proud of it!
Another note, girls are beautiful here…
Anyway, I am on the move, heading to Bukit Luwang where they told me you can see one of our last bonds in evolution…orangutans….
see you guys!
