We have been staying at Lake Toba across the water from Parapat in Sumatra and yet again no wifi due to the link being cut by workers. The island was formed by a volcanic eruption the largest lake of its kind in the world and then a subsequent eruption formed the island. What a great place we stayed at Hotel Carolina on the best spot on the island …

Shrove Tuesday

... was ready to sample, and the remainder was packed for us all to share. Sweet!
Cake duly sampled - delish - Jenny's is the destination again tonight . We've heard she's got some good pork, which is one of her specialities.
Beer ordered, and started, we peruse the menu. Jenny herself comes to take our order, and I immediately ask for the barbecued pork. I'm quickly followed by Laura, and before the others can speak, Jenny goes to the kitchen to check ...

Exploration, rain, and the Oscars

... even having bets on who wins the various categories. Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn. Wow, that's a quote worthy of an Oscar!
The three of them settle down in front of the big screen, while I sit in the adjoining room and read in peace. It all seems to take hours - and probably does. OK with me.
After a beer and a chat afterwards, we go our separate ways; we promise them we will watch House of Cards - but of course we don't!

Welcome to Lake Toba

... at him not to be stupid. The other passengers try to shush me, but they can't see what I can. I'm too young to die! The driver puts his phone away and mutters imprecations. No problem, mutter whatever you want, just steer the car.
At long last, we arrive in Parapat, and thankfully climb out of the car. No way am I travelling with this guy again, so I tell him I want my 100,000 back. And he refuses! That didn't go down well, but a bit of ...

    Great location on the Samosir island shores of Lake Toba, stunning view, good looking Batak-style bungalows, lovely open sided restaurant, friendly staff etc etc. What stops it getting five stars is the food - not so great, and the slightly shabby interior of our bungalow - it could do with a paint job and a refurb, it looks tired. Other than that, with such a location a pup tent would get four stars.
