Deb in West Sumatra 2012/2013

Deb travel blog
Welcome to my trip journal!

Goodness, I must be nuts or have a sense of adventure, fun, and maybe throw in some challenges and shenanigans for good measure. Otherwise why else would I leave my comfortable home in Loxton South Australia and move to Muaro Sijunjung West Sumatera Indonesia? I will be one of four volunteers living and working on assignment with Australian Volunteers International in West Sumatra. Two are already there and I join them in March and the fourth will be joining us around August. The closet volunteer to me is about 40km away in Solok the others in Padang the capital of West Sumatra. My monthly allowance will be A$700, $175 week or approximately $5.80hr!(if my maths is right)
