Sumatrastraat in Enschede

I was helping my husband to find new apartment as he will be homeless on this August 15, 2015. So we must find new house real quick. Hopefully we’ll find the one with a landlord since we are interested in having “foreigner family”.

I looked for it in several websites including this one:

It leads me to an advertisement titled “For rent near downtown Enschede €250,- All-in”. Pretty cheap, so why don’t we take a look to find an excuse not to live there (as we usually did, that’s why we haven’t found the perfect housing yet).

The house is located in Wooldriksweg street, which name is difficult as hell to be pronounced.. until I found something interesting…. Aha!! Do you know? Enschede has Sumatrastraat.. and Kalimantanstraat. Woooow.. O_o

I knew there are several street named after something Indonesia-ish in The Hague (Den Haag), for example Munir Street.. But I thought it’s only because The Hague is a big city so they want something memorable. Knowing that Enschede has the streets named after cities or islands of the Indonesian archipelago is pretty impressive for me. enschede map So… let us take a look closer to Enschede map.
