Melaka to Medan

Hello from Medan! I’m back in North Sumatra after 13 years, and it is good to be back. The last time I came here the airport was in the town centre (you could walk there). The airport has now moved and there is an airport train. I will be checking out the train system here and then chilling by Lake Toba.
I was in Melaka earlier this week, which is another place I haven’t been to for over a decade. I’ve not written anything about Mekaka or Medan before, so I find that I have little memory of either place. Both places will be added to the blog post pile.
