one of many good things that i like about traveling is making friend with strangers. this guy was on his way back home, just like me, but to different direction. he told me about how good his hometown is. a place where you can do surfing or simply enjoy the beach without too much annoying distraction from another visitor or local people.

he also showed me his tattoo, which was originally made by native people of Mentawai. it supposed to be a spiderweb tattoo, but because the pain was almost more than he could bear, he stopped before it's been finished.
