Final night in Sumatra

A travel blog entry by sw19mike

... to find a bed for the night. There is a place called Charlie's just on the other side of the square from the taxi place. Good words in Lonely Planet - not always a good sign, but hey, it's just for 1 night. We check it out, and it's fine. A bit grungy, but that's pretty much expected here,. So we unload our rucksacks, and sit on the veranda looking out over the market and the port. Actually a splendid location. Many of the market stalls have packed up ...

Instead we get the impression we are on the ocean!
We dump our bags and ...
