Last night we arrived Batam, Indonesia from Singapore by ferry. It was a very busy day as John had his field lab from 0800-1730 in Singapore. As soon as the lab was complete we grabbed a cab and headed for the ferry terminal. We arrived in plenty of time, boarded the ferry and enjoyed the 45 minute crossing. Immigration was a breeze and our driver was waiting! The Holiday Inn Batam Resort is beautiful … Wish we had more time. Unfortunately we only have time for a leisurely breakfast, swim and then it is back to the ferry.
