We made it one step closer to Papua yesterday. We are in Makassar on the southern tip of the Indonesian island of Sulawesi. The plan is to fly to Papua tonight arriving early tomorrow morning.
We are staying in another comfortable hotel overlooking Losari beach right in downtown Makassar. I think I can safely say that we are all tired of comfort right now, and would trade it for a tent at base camp in a second.
It's pretty hot and humid here, so everyone is scoping out the inside workout potential of the gym downstairs to burn off some energy. Turns out these climbers aren't very good a sitting around.
