    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.

    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 …

You can get a cheaper ticket (even around RMB 20 per person) but these trains usually depart early in the morning and the journey lasts nearly 3 hours. Since we paid so much we were invited to wait in a nice A/C lounge and each of us was also given a bottle of water. It took us only 1,5 hours to get to Shenzhen and it was quite a comfortable ride.

    Chill out afternoon, and all five of us meet up early evening. Adam and Laura followed our path of yesterday to a T. And when they came to the cake lady, she remembered me and Baska. So she persuaded Adam and Laura they should order a big cake, and share it with us! Great sales technique. Adam and Laura did as they were told, and completed the walk we failed to finish yesterday, so by the time they returned to cake lady, ...

    ... Don't really want to change sterling, but realise we still have 120 Aussie dollars. When the rain finally subsided, I went to see the money changer in reception, and got 1.1 million rupiah in exchange. Job done!
    A Cotney's evening was decided on. At least it's close in case the rain returns, and anyway it's very good and very cheap. A good combination!
    It's the Oscars today, and Baska, Adam and Laura are very excited about it. ...

    ... start labouring. Doesn't worry some though, as maniacs attempt to pass long lorries coming up to blind corners. We just avoid getting crushed as one suddenly has to brake hard and pull in, nearly knocking us down the steep slope on our left. And then our driver's mobile rings - and he answers it and starts a long conversation! Our car is a manual, so when he needs to change gear, there are no hands on the steering wheel. This is when I lose it, ...
