It took us one hour from Makassar to Soroako. The travel felt short because Yamin liked to tell something, anything, such as about his experiences or else.
Before we landed, I looked through the window. I could see the Lake Matano. It was big and really beautiful. And I also could see the housing. It was very well planned.
When I stepped on Soroako, I could see the airport was small. The view was beautiful. The air was not as hot as at Makassar but not also cool either.
Bapak Maryanto picked us. After we got our bagages, he asked us to check in at the dormitory and have lunch. Eating again... argh I felt so full. After we kept our stuffs, we dined at the restaurant of the dormitory. They served European and Indonesian food.
After we had lunch, we went to Bapak Maryanto's office and discussed about the plan that we would do for a week.
After discussion, Bapak Maryanto showed us around, especially the housing of PT INCO's employees. It was like not in Indonesian. To me, it was like the housing in US (maybe...) that I saw on TV.
Before Bapak Maryanto took us to the dormitory, he dropped at a restaurant to buy some food for his son. I saw that the housing for local people was really different from the INCO's.
When We arrived at our rooms, I checked the room and took some pictures. It was surprising to me. Even it was called a dormitory, it was like hotel room.
In the evening, we couldn't take rest. After having dinner (European food again...), we discussed more about our plan. I had to stay late to prepare and was drowsy. But, I had a big responsibility that I couldn't go to bed... :(
