Once arrived on the island there was another girl, from Pakistan who lives in Singapore, who had been convinced to rent a scooter and tour on the island with it. After we had talked for a while, the three of us decided to rent the car with the driver. That was great fun and all three of us were looking forward to the last stop, Aek Ranggat, the hot springs.
The hot springs are officially not on the island of Samosir. On the internet, you will also find different stories of people who say how long it takes to get there. This varied from half an hour to three hours. From the village of Tuk Tuk, where you are dropped off by boat, it takes at least an hour to get there. In the car, we could already see the huge white-grey rock with baths.
We got out of the car and the driver told us there was also a swimming pool. We took a look there, but it turned out to be only for men. The wrong idea to have a look, all the boys started giggling and we walked away. Well, there is a lot of giggling in this country anyway. We got the idea that we were stared at and laughed at all day. The day before, a woman pointed at my legs, yelled SEXY at the market and started laughing. It’s 30 degrees Celsius in this country, a tight pair of jeans will never get me out, will it?!
