Oh, the humidity!

The sun rises very early in Makassar [Makassar-travel-guide-1318796], not quite as bad as in Manado [Manado-travel-guide-866704] but it is still very bright at five something. We had decided on an early start to beat the heat.

Out the door at 8am, it wasn't too hot ... but it within minutes we were drenched from the humidity. We went to Fort Rotterdam (Benteng Ujung Pandang) and had some noodles for breakfast and were back into the cool of the hotel by about 10am.

We made the most of our hotel room and asked for a late checkout before leaving for the airport at 2pm ... very early for our flight ... it was either waiting in the steaming weather somewhere or at the airport. At the airport, we paid about USD5 to enter the pay-lounge with food and drinks ... rather reasonable but it was also the hot corner ofthe airport!

You can't have it all ways!
