Daily Photo – Muktar my main Aceh Man


I can’t let my trip to Aceh go by without a photo of my main man Muktar. Muktar was a great tour guide in my down time in Aceh while waiting on work to commence. I learnt that Muktar lost four children (all boys) in the tsunami in 2004 and he himself was swept 4km inland when the wave hit and stopped when he struck an electricity poll and broke his leg. I was so taken by Muktar and his story/circumstances that I spent each afternoon with him going to various sights around Aceh and always doubled his quote when asking for a price for his service as a driver.
