    Pattimurah University, Ambon, Rumahtiga, Maluku

    If you are on the way at north peninsuila- special the street to Laha, or to Ambon Pattimurah Airport, you will pass the little village Rumah Tiga.

    Here is the place the University, the Campus of "University Pattimurah Ambon".

    Last visit in Ambon, it was nice to see, that the buildings are renovated and go in service again.
    Here in the Photo the building of "Fakutas ilmu Sosial dan ilmu Politik"

    The roof architecture of the building remembers at local building tradition.

    It is worth a short stop on the travel.

    On the way from Ambon on beachroad to southwest, in direction Latuhalat,
    the street is mostly everytime near the beachwall - good for sightseeing.

    At one point the guide mentioned "we have sun today and here is a good place- at good weather you can from here see Hollywood...".
    Real?
    Indeed -there are in big letters set "Hollywood" - see left in background at the photo!

    Pulau Ambon, Pintu Kota, door to blue Banda sea

    In the south coast near Banda see you will find not only the well known Santai Beach with the not so far divers station, there is even a great place of undisturbed nature.
    The big waves of Banda See create a strange wild landcape.
    In the Frontpage you had seen a picture of Pintu Kota - the door of Ambon.
    Here is a view of the other side of the bay of Pintu Kota- a stony landfall of big stones formed from great waves of Banda See in raintime.
    In Ambon the raintime goes from April until August.

    Warung at Santai beach Ambon

    In Indonesia are usually the small Warung at the streets each special for an special eating.
    So in Ambon at santai beach under the trees at beachside
    There was an Ibu making "Jeruk Kelapa"- Coconut juice.
    Together with coconut pieces and a little ice it must be very nice at the hot day.
    (but it is recommended, like usual in tropics, to take it without Ice)
    See the Photo- behind is the beachside of Santai to the blue banda sea.

    Upacara Turun Perahu

    The first day arrived at Ambon, I was very hungry and left the hotel to look for breakfast. But then when I was sitting near a traditional market, these people were passing the street with a wooden boat! Ambon people called it "Upacara Turun Perahu" (special ceremony for newly made boat) to avoid any bad luck.
