Going to the city of Maritime, Makasar is a wonderful journey that I have. To the city with the people had known since long time ago as a great sailors, brave and heroic. They sailed to Africa, Madagascar island, China, Australia, Conquers Malacca, and Pasifics. They looked upon the stars to find their way, and looked for predictions in the ocean-water. They always had the right feeling by smelling the ocean….
There are 4 race in south Sulawesi, Bugis, Makassar, Mandar and Torajan.
And all of them live in peacefully and respect one another. Friendly people and nice smile on their face…. Great food, and nice city.
Located infront of the Losari beach. Ford Rotterdam or Benteng Ujung Pandang was built by the Gowa king, Karaeng Tunipalangga Ulaweng, in 1545.
