Pictures of Padang

After being in Jakarta, Padang really does feel like a small town. We keep joking that we're "village people" and don't understand the way of the city. The two cities are very different. We've been spending a lot of time in Jakarta looking for affordable food. Some of the prices here are comparable to American prices. We've never had a problem with finding food in Padang. There's always stalls or small restaurants available. It's more like which one do we want to go to.

Lots of carts selling sugary drinks.

Panoramic view of the city from the 6th floor of a hotel. No skyscrapers in this city. Just densely packed houses.
