Bener Meriah International Kite Festival, Aceh, Indonesia

Bener Meriah is a new district in Aceh Province, Indonesia. Since the airport at Bener Meriah was not in operation at that time, we took the trip to the festival by road from Medan. It was a long 13 hours trip on a 24 seater coaster before we finally reached our destination.

In celebrating Bener Meriah 4th anniversary, an international kite festival was held. When it was first held, few countries participated. The festival has now grown into a larger participation and held annually.

If you travel around America you see different sections of highways donated by this or that person, and that's a slow beginning of what may end up being a situation common in the Third World: some sections of highways in wealthy areas are beautifully maintained and other parts are just dirt-strewn potholes.
