Last few days in Toba

Our past few days have been basically chilling and nursing Dre’s foot, watching some DVD’s and walking around the island.  We had an amazing whole fish bbq’d in banana leaf, and topped off our final day by scoring the best ‘view’ seat in our favourite restaurant and some delicious Indo fare.  This morning the swelling in Dre’s foot has gone down enough that he can loosely wear a shoe, which is good timing as today we are heading to Bukit Lawang to see wild Orang-Utans.  Woohoo!

We are absolutely loving Lake Toba.  True relaxation has set in and so far in the past week we have established sort of a routine – get up at 5am to see the sunrise and work, have breakfast, go for a run, go for a swim, realise it’s 8am and you have the rest of the day to do whatever.  We’ve spent our time after 8am scootering around the island, swimming, reading, admiring the view, relaxing, eating amazing food and napping.  It doesn’t get much better than this!  Our photos are here.
