SUMATRA – Jungle and beach in a green island hit hard by the tsunami

We love Sumatra, it’s a green island with jungle, very beautiful sea and white beaches. Unfortunately it has a very sad history.

Our trip starts in Medan, the capital of Sumatra, we avoided it, too traffic and too chaotic. For us, it was enough to cross it: the traffic of our cities is nothing compared to the traffic of Medan.

Then we  moved to Tangkahan to see elephants and to wash them.

Then we went to Banda Aceh, famous for the 2014 Tsunami. We found a rebuilt city that is trying to continue without forgetting.
