Thanks for your compliments! I was only in Pekan Baru for one night in a dreary little hotel, but I was not ripped off. Have better memories of the rest of Sumatera. Sorry I did not get to go to the islands, hope to do so another time; you should always leave something for later!
You New Zealanders are quite some travelers and blessed with Indonesia and the Pacific islands so close...but there you are, on the soggy and rainy island of England...perhaps you'd even get a chance to hop across to my native Holland, always good for a couple of weeks...get a railraodpass, a very good deal.
I have a cousin in Wainui-O-Mata who immigrated in the 50's and now has some 26 children and grandchildren, getting together every Saturday...they all love N.Z., and so did I on my mere two visits there.
All the best!
