Tedious bus ride to Tana Toraja

View 2009 Perth & Sulawesi on alexchan's travel map.

After a leisurely morning we departed Makassar on a bus journey to Rantepao [Rantepao-travel-guide-1310691]. The scheduled departure was 1pm and the supposed journey time 8 hours.

After a small delay due to air-con failure and a few other mechanical problems we arrived 11h15 later ... at 1230am. It was not so nice for our guide Yosep who had been waiting for a few hours despite me having kept in touch with him over the phone with constant revisions of our arrival time.

While the air-conditioning was running, it wasn't exactly cool inside ... but it was quite pleasant after sundown except for the windy bits into the highland. Shouldn't complain ... it was an older bus with Executive Class and so had plenty of legroom.
