WOMAN AT RUMAH ACEH

SYNOPSIS:  A tour with Auye’s tuk-tuk through rain and wind to see some traditional Aceh architecture in situ and some of the sites in Banda Aceh.

Dutch-built “indigenous” architecture created to showcase a colony at an exhibit (see Day 2) was not quite what I had in mind when I had hoped to see traditional houses.  The art historian in me objected.  At the museum library I inquired where to go to see some of the Rumah Aceh architecture in situ.  A small village, about 12 miles from Banda Aceh was given to me as the closest possibility.VIEW PHOTOS AND READ THE WHOLE STORY
