... des Töffs. Es ging alles gut und nach 3 Stunden habe ich alle Dokumente und bin durch den Zoll. Die 30 Kilometer zurück nach Medan brauchen fast nochmals so viel Zeit, da überall Verkehrsstaus sind und viel zu viel Verkehr. Der Verkehr erinnert mich ein wenig an Indien, aber nicht mit so viel Huperei. Mal sehen wie es morgen wird, wenn wir über Land fahren ...
... Martin went outside and joined into some sports with the hotel hosts/guides. He played for a few hours and then it was time for a shower and then dinner. While we were at dinner we sorted out our transportation from the hotel to the airport for first thing the next morning. We were all treated to more music by the hotel staff and the guides for the rest of the night before being invited to down to the camp fire to celebrate one of the ...
... and he thought we looked fit HAHA! That he would take us the quicker way which meant pretty much a vertical climb in which you had to use all limbs to hoist yourself up and it was quite tough but once you got going it wasn't too bad. It was quite overcast so we were lucky but the humidity was insane! We were all just dripping with sweat the whole day. We were going for about an hour when Hassan stopped, put his finger to his mouth to tell us to be quiet and motioned us forward ...
... in the area. Only one way to go up, going up a landslide and then see if we could get further that way. A very treacherous and difficult climb up followed and brought us to the end of the erosion and the beginning of the jungle. Steep mountain surface, trees with thorns, poisonous leaves, and plenty of insects fending of their territory against the intruders. We had to find a way up or down, as going back was not an option, way too dangerous. Machete ...
... race, the boys started to yell/scream/holler the Canadian National Anthem...which was seriously funny. Then they had the girls race to drink half a pitcher, and one girl just gave up and dumped it on her head.
The chef for the hotel was this portly German fellow who brought out this metal frame with hooks and hung 2 metres of sausage from 4 hooks and they had girls (*ahem* SLUTS!) race to see how much they could eat in the 5 minutes or so. Needless to say ALL the ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsPondok Wisata Angel Medan
Well, Medan is not exactly hell but it works in the title. Medan is a big, crazy city, not voted as the travellers' favourite destination, but rather used as a base to start exploring Sumatra from. The Angel is on a frantic main road with a fence down the middle of it and non-stop cars zooming along it at all hours. That's what puts the hotel in the 'heavenly' catagory. It's clean, tidy, has a very traveller-friendly cafe that sells cold Bintang, and, they organise onward travel to Bukit Luang and Lake Toba. In fact, the transport, accommodation and two day Orang utan jungle trek they sold us was not only good value but also led to us having a great time. If you'r in Medan for a night or two max - stay here!
