Samosir Art Festival 28 29 December 2011 at Parbaba Beach, Samosir Island


Because we think that Art Performances are a great media to create awareness we are planning a local event on  a beautiful natural spot on the island of Samosir in the middle of the biggest volcanic crater lake in South East Asia. The idea is to improve the awareness of local people for the amazing beauty of the place they are living in and the need to take preserve arts, nature and culture.

Hi,Just wanted to let you know that Medan has loads of learly modern air conditioned shopping centres that are not near the back packing areas where most of us back packers stay.And I have had the chance to visit the very beautiful and expensive Chinese housing complexes just on the outskirts of Medan that are such a contrast to the area around the Grand Mosque.Personally I learly like Medan with all its griminess, and the lovely lovely people.Pamela
