    Hello, my name is Roni. I'm building a cafe and guest house in Bukittinggi, West Sumatra, Indonesia. We have completed the architectural design of the cafe, and now we are working on some of the preliminary construction. I am hoping to receive some help gardening around the land where the cafe will be built.

    I am a local guide so I can help travelers go for hikes into neighboring valleys, to a nearby lake, to the famous Rafflesia flower (if the season is right), or to the summit of a volcano. Travelers can also check out coffee farms and other local attractions around Bukittinggi. I am happy to help arrange personalized tours for travelers coming to Bukittinggi.
