Typical Batak house in Danau Toba


I got on a minibus that for 35 rupees took me to Medan in the north station from where the buses leave in the direction of Bukit Lawang, my next destination. The journey from Parapat to Medan lasted just over four hours. Especially crossing the city of Medan - with more than 3 million inhabitants - becomes very heavy.

Curiously, in one of the cigarette talks resting from the bus, I told my plans to an Indonesian traveling companion and when I arrived at my destination I already had Sinard waiting for me at the bus terminal. I got on a motorcycle and for 5,000 rupees they left me on the outskirts of the city towards Nora's Rainforest. The place is really immersed in the jungle. The street ends and there is a path along the river that reaches this small house with simple wooden rooms. The room came out for just 30,000 rupees without haggling.

In the place I met a group of Italians who had done the trekking in the jungle of two days with Sinard and they spoke to me very well about him so I already closed all the doubts and deposited the luck in Sinard in the next days of trekking to the search for orangutans, lizards, sepientes and other species of the Sumatran jungle
