I visited my grandmother who got illness last weekend in Curup. Curup is a small town, located near Bengkulu. It takes around 9 hours from Palembang to this town.
It was a quite long journey though. The first journey was reaching Lubuk Linggau, which took around 7 hours long by train. And then, the trip is continued to Curup from Lubuk Linggau by using a car travel from the train station. It took around 2 hours.
The view in Curup was so nice, with many plants and farms surroundings. I could also see Bukit Barisan mountain lying there. The weather was pretty cold there compare to Palembang, but the air was so fresh.
