The Blue Sky Hotel offer you buffet breakfast. Plenty of options, variety of bread, soups, fried rice, sauges,bacon(made from beef), fruits, cereals, fruits etc. Than we left to SMAN 2 Balikpapan. Well..it was the project that i told you before..let's not get into details. But I had the chance to experience the tradtitional welcome dance by the students. Really nice, especially love the native prints and colours of the dress.
Than we left to Restaurant Kenari. They had the best crabs in town. Big and tasty with plenty of sauce to pick. We had crabs (bigger this time), corn crabs soup, cap cay, fried squid. Ahh i just crabs orgasm hehhehe I mean this time you don't need the thing to tear the shell of..you just cracked it with your hands. We were maniaaccss !!
Than, i went back to hotel and head back to airport. ON the way home, I stopped at small store by the road to buy amplang. It's fish crackers ..very vamous here..and it taste crunchy and good.
As Garuda Indonesia taking off, i said bye bye and wishing i would be back here with more time to explore the island.
Little tips: Don't forget to go to Kampung Sayur to buy wonderful colourful natural stones!
