FROM TAWAU TO TARAKAN , INDONESIA , IT COST ME 130 RINGIT FOR THREE AND HALF HOURS  BY FAST FERRY. THE PROBLEM HERE IS THEIR MONETARY SYSTEM IS TO MUCH NUMBER. ONE DOLLAR IS EQUIVALENT TO FOURTHEEN THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED RUPEES AND THEY HAVE A LIMIT OF TWO AND SOME ATM TO ONE AND HALF MILLION PER WITHDRAWAL . 

  THE CITY OF TARAKAN IS JUST LIKE ANOTHER CITY THAT IS PROGRESSING. THE PLACE IS SO PROVINCIAL AND THE PEOPLE ARE SO FRIENDLY EVEN THERE IS A COMMUNCATION PROBLEM. THIS CITY IS 95% NON ENGLISH SPEAKING. RIGHT NOW THEY ARE CELEBRATING THE HARI RAYA AND MET THIS FAMILY AFTER THEY ATTEND THEIR SUNDAY OBLIGATION.  

  

 THIS KID ARE HAPPY TALKING TO ME IN THEIR LANGUAGE AND ANSWER THEM IN ENGLISH  AND THEY JUST LAUGHING BECAUSE THEY CANT SPEAK . THEN BEFORE I LEFT I ASKED THEM TO TAKE THEIR PICTURE AND THEY ARE REALLY HAPPY KID. AS YOU NOTICE THEY ALSO WEARING THEIR SUNDAY CLOTHES. WHILE THOSE CHILDREN ARE PLAYING MARBLE ON THE STREET.
