It's been a long time since I didn't update and instead left you all hanging with just a teaser of a waterfall, so here comes the update!
@jrnavid & Huston: Neither are correct, i'm sorry!
Today's entry covers the small town of Panggul, located 14km east of Medang. The town's main industries are fishing and farming, the hallmark of most small seaside Indonesian towns. What the town is more known for, is the treacherous road that connects Medang with Panggul, that also happens to be dotted with various waterfalls along the way. Built in the 19th century by the Dutch utilising slave labor, many died constructing the road and many more have died in accidents here, so beware.
The entrance to the town and also the end of the said treacherous road, a waterfall is the landmark that you've entered the town!
The easternmost area of Panggul is perched on top of a cliff overlooking Medang Bay. People with money(eg. high-ranking goverment officials, politicians, landowners, boatowners) tend to live here to get far from the polluted and grimy center of town.
Slums and the mangrove
The city's central market. Like in many parts of SE Asia, the people who own the shops tend to live in seemingly dirty dwellings above.
The town's two schools. Due to a lack of space, the schools are divided into two periods, a night one(1:30-7:00) and a morning(6:30-1:00) one. For the high school, senior high school(10-12) occupies the morning period and the junior high school occupies the night period.
The local fishing harbour. Fish are typically auctioned here, while the less desirable fish are sold within the town. To the top is the local sugar mill, processing sugar from surrounding areas.

To the east of town lays a quiet, peaceful farming community.
