We travelled to Lake Toba where we had a hotel on the island Samosir. We visited the Batak villages with their special houses.
We continued our journey to Bukittinggi. And again views of beautiful ricefields. We passed the equator in Bojol, where we had to take some photo's. It was nothing speccial, but we had a lot of fun.
In Bukittingi we made a marvellous walk through the Ngarai canyon. We ended in the village Kota Gadang, well known for its silverwork. We didn't see that, but we saw a woman doing some beautiful embroidery. It takes her 3 months to finish this work.
The walk went through the jungle and the ricefields, but also over very small and high bamboo bridges.
From Bukittinggi we took an airplane to Jakarta on Java. Tomorrow I will write a blog our trip on Java.
