Country Road, Take Me home....

It’s been (almost) 34 years since my last visit to Medan, North Sumatra. I went there with the whole family to visit my grandfather village in Sipirok. This time, I visited Medan, Brastagi and Lake Toba with my family. I enjoyed the trip and wish could be back there someday. I stayed in Caroline Hotel in Lake Toba. It was fantastic, and tranquil. I almost couldn’t hear the sound of machine. So quiet and the view so enormous. Here are some pictures that I took in Toba Lake.

Awug, the traditional sundanese snack
Love this one so much, especially when it's still hot. You can taste the palm-sugar melting in your mouth. The lady goes around the neighborhood by carrying two "mount" of awug. This snack is my favorite since I was a little girl. Now my kids love it so much. Well, like a mother like a daughter......
