Monumen Kapal Selam (in English, Submarine Monument) is a monument to Indonesia's naval history. The museum consists primarily of one of Indonesia's first submarines, the Pasopati 410. The Russian Whiskey class submarine was built in Vladivostok in 1952 and purchased by Indonesia in 1962 and saw service in the campaign to force the Dutch out of Irian Jaya (New Guinea), but according to at least one resource, the sub had never fired any of its torpedoes. Believe it or not, it was only decommisioned in 1990.

Tjong A Fie Mansion, Medan

It's always fun to photograph interiors. Sometimes it is like walking into a painting as you are, in fact, walking into a piece of artwork.

Earlier this month, I had the pleasure of photographing Tjong A Fie Mansion. This is a heritage mansion located along Jalan Jendral A. Yani in the historic core of the city of Medan. The former residence of a famous Chinese merchant, mixes Victorian and Chinese stle. The exquisite hand-painted ceilings, Tjong's huge bedroom, interesting art pieces, an upstairs ballroom, and Taoist temples help to make it one of the most impressive historic buildings in town.
