Hello from Lake Toba in Sumatra. Lake Toba is the world’s largest crater lake, and being inside an ancient volcano makes for a spectacular setting. I spent about one month here in 2009 and stayed in a lakeside cottage for $6 a night. I didn’t keep a good record of that trip, but I think the place I stayed at is gone. I arrived here last night and there are many new buildings here. I need to have a proper walk around to see what has changed.
I’ve been travelling a lot this week, but I still managed to find some travel reads in between train trips and cramped minivan rides.
