I’m in Sumatra, my first ever visit to Indonesia, and it’s not quite for rest and relaxation. I’m back in my ‘other life’ – managing and massaging for a cycling team from Australia, and we’re here for the ‘Tour of Singkarak’, West Sumatra.
Many people’s interpretation of Indonesia is this jungly under developed country with no electricity and bare chested men and women riding around on elephants. Though some of that sounds fun, it’s not entirely true. Indonesia is a modern developing country complete with high rise buildings.
