A rather odd experience at the Padang Airport on departure. We were not late in getting to the immigration counters before going into the departure lounge but were one of the last in the queue. An immigration officer came round to us (not the one in the counter) and in a very stern way started to ask us questions: Why you come to Indonesia? Answer: Holiday; Q: What holiday, Why holiday in Indonesia?; Where; What did you do; Why?
How does one answer why we came to Sumtra for a holiday? We like the place of course, we are returning visitors but why the animosity? and on departure as well! Very odd. The officer was clearly not happy. I was with my kid and he kept looking unhappy even as I said thank you.
i love the sights and people of the area and I would return but the line of questioning by the immigration officer - I can't understand. Can anyone explain?
