Hotel Sedona Manado
Travel Blogs from Manado
Our weekend trip starts on Saturday, 12 October 2013. I went on this diving trip with few Citi Divers kids and few of my friends.

Ibu Jein and I talked about having Hosanna and the kids complete a final test so that they can get a certificate from Unsrat for completing the beginning level Indonesian course of instruction.

Hotel looks nice on the outside but as I walked along the corridor to my room, I can see the water marks and other wear and tear. The room is okay. Slightly dirty.
