My friends in department of electrical engineering ITB class of 2008 held a vacation at Ciwidey on July,17th-19th 2012. I came late to Ciwidey and followed my friend on July,18th because I had to finished some of my work first. I went to Ciwidey by chartering an angkot with 4 of my friends that come late too and arrived there in the morning. We stayed in two villas which is surrounded by tea farm. This is the location : -7.141851,107.382675. This place was so pleasant. There are some tourism attraction that is near from where we stayed such as Danau Situ Patengan, Kawah Putih, and Cimanggu. In the first day, my friends who had arrived early went to Danau Situ Patengan. I'm regret for not coming there.
In the second day, when I arrived at Ciwidey, I enjoyed the morning air and nice atmosphere there immediately. Then, I had my breakfast and prepared to join a game with my friends in the pool.
We played a game in the pool.
This is a video of the game.
In the afternoon, we went to Cimanggu Tourism near our villa. There are a hot water pool which also contain some minerals there but we just went to the woods behind it for jungle tracking. We were accompanied by a guide from Cimanggu.
At the beginning of our walking in the woods some of my friends get a trouble when we decided to see the hot water spring. They walked on hot sludge and leaved their slippers on it. One of my friend lost one of his slippers so we and the guide helped him to find his slippers.
After we find his slippers, we continued our trip with different route. We were going to see the cool water spring at the top of the woods.
At night, we made grilled chicken.
We lit the fireplace before slept.
Making fried rice for breakfast.
In the afternoon we had to be checked out. Before we were back to ITB, we went to Kawah Putih. If we want to go to Kawah Putih we must pass through road uphill. It's better if you can use your own vehicle but the price will be high. So we used two cars from Kawah Putih administrator. On the way to Kawah Putih, suddenly a car that some of my friends and I rode had a trouble. It stopped when pass a ramp road. So, we had to wait for a new car on the way.

My crazy friends
What a nice vacation with my friends :)
