Goodbye Makassar

I have finally left my hometown Makassar. The feeling is mixed, I am happy to start a new journey with my wife, but at the same time, I also miss our family in Indonesia. Following is picture I took two days before I left Makassar city. It is taken from Taman Bahari, Pantai Losari, overviewing cityscape instead of the beach.

Makassar Cityscape

There are two main buildings shown in picture. The first one on the left is Stella Maris Hospital (Rumah Sakit Stella Maris). It is one of the well known hospital in Makassar. Another one on the right is Imperial Arya Duta Hotel. The hotel is not there yet when I still live in Makassar (i.e. ~13 years ago). Time did fly very fast. The hotel is 5 star hotel overlooking Losari Beach (Pantai Losari). Viewing sunset from the top of this hotel must be amazing, even though I haven't tried it yet :)

This photo portrays Makassar as a beautiful, clean, and modern city. But don't sell off your stuff and move based on this one photo. ^_^
