Travel Blogs from Padang
... Ocean missing from my list I decided to just quickly walk down the stairs and at least go in belt deep. It was incredibly warm water... It was not colder than I would usually have my shower. "Boiling" compared to the Irish sea.

Sitting there and writing for a couple a of minutes, a pretty girl came over and talked ...
... wall) which is a smaller version of the Great Wall of China. We spent a while there walking the wall and checking out the area. By the time we left there we went to see Benteng Fort de Kock and the zoo. This was an old fort that looked like it was about to collapse.
