Been through 22 hours, and now we are in Bau Bau right at 05.00am. Evi and Maya surprised us with the information that they wouldn't continue journey in Bau Bau, they will return to Ujung Pandang on the same day. What a truly right decision.. :D. Today, Uwais can't even provide a clear information about where will we go next and what kind of transportation that we'll use. Mr. Erryst (Lelly's friend) has arrived. Btw, Pak Erryst is working in Non-Governmental Organizations Bau Bau. Uwais asked a lot to Pak Erryst and local policeman about transportation to Wanci Island. Without want to be bothered by all the chaos that happened, Mindy, Kris and I walked out harbour gate to buy something to eat for breaky. We found sticky grill with IDR 500/piece. Eat that junk and take some photos around harbour, that's what we do this morning. 30 minutes left and we didn't find a conclusion in this discussion. And lately, we've got the information that we'll cross to Wanci Island by boat and its jetty location's far away. We rent local transport (Angkot) to be there. Driver's so reckless, he wanted to replace current public transport in the town, but we declined because we chase the time in order to get there just in time. There's an incident on the way to harbour that the battery's dry and fired, it's burned driver's hand. The driver mad to us because he has reminded us that he needs to exchange that car with a better one. While some friends treating driver's hand, I and the rest take some pictures at the front of local people house. The car can't be used anymore, so driver calls his friend to deliver other car to change a damaged one. In the middle of chaos, Pak Kasim come over, and offers us ride to harbour by his pick up. There's Me, Christine, Intan, Kris, Dina, Aniek and Mindy join in the back of that pick up. Our journey stops because Pak Kasim suggests us not to continue this trip to Wanci by boat because it's too dangerous and some accident happened due to bad weather lately. After stopping at an office and discuss, finally we got the deal that we'll have lunch in first and then discuss again to get a final deal.

We are having lunch in Pasar Wajo with Pak Kasim, our team call Lelly and suggest her to get back with Uwais (they're in another car). When the team has been assembled, Pak Kasim bring us to Pasar Wajo beach. The beach's low tide, and just few friends swim to the middle of the sea. The rest, including me are waiting at the edge of the beach. Done with short activity, Pak Kasim bring us to HillHouse Resort. Pak Kasim is the owner of this resort and location of this resort is right behind Benteng Keraton - Bau Bau.

We take this chance to have a shower, take a nap and lunch. Few hours later we continue this trip to explore Benteng Keraton - Bau Bau to take some pictures and enjoy hill view. Around 30 mins here, we continue to go Bau Bau harbour (the same Harbour as earlier). Chaos is happening again when Uwais said that all of us will cross to Tomia by boat. Some of us understand safety and we think that this is not a good idea. Some of us go to the boat for survey to assure the boat is safe. Uwais, Mindy, Dina and Aniek insisted to leave by that boat. The most painful thing to know that our team has been divided into two. Uwais returned our money back.

Tonight, we had Chicken Satay for dine in the road side and it has small piece of chicken. After dinner, we go to Pak Erryst official house and again......discuss about the next trip card. Christine and Lelly shared money from Uwais. we use that money to pay Merpati Air ticket to Wanci for tomorrow morning and Pak Erryst assisted us to book the ticket and other travel expenses.

After shower, I, Milka, Ajeng, Kris, Intan and Lelly go to bed. We sleep at the same room and never stop to talk about what we've been through in this trip. Currently, our team only left 13 people. Christine is our Tour Leader and Lelly now become our Finance Manager :D.
