Mr. Fatchul Rochman (online transportation driver) finally picked me up at Pendem Fort courtyard after he strayed into its south courtyard.
I just ordered in GOJEK application to went to Tanjung Intan Port. When I got on his bike, he asked my origin. After he knew I was from Jakarta, he seemed enthusiastic, and without my consent he said that he would deliver me to some places before entering Tanjung Intan Port. He was sincerely because at the end of the trip he refused when I tried to gave additional tips.
He explained to me every place that we passed along the way to the Port. Starting from the history of KOPASSUS Headquarter building and several stories about Nusakambangan. Exciting………
He turned abruptly. When I asked where we were going, he said we were heading for the Coal Pier.
This is it guys …. Was given a bonus like this
Cilacap Coal Pier
Leaving the Coal Pier, he started to told about the hustle and bustle of Cilacap when there were dead executions of some famous prisoners. While told, he suddenly brought me here:
Left: PENGAYOMAN IV Ship that transported prisoners to Nusakambangan Jail.
Right Up and Down: Sailing post to Nusakambangan
This is the sailing point of prisoners toward Nusakambangan jail. So it was very tight. I said: “We don’t have to go there, Mr. Fatchul”, I thought we would be expelled by officers because we didn’t have any interests there. But he still assured me that he would successfully entered me to this place because he was Cilacap townspeople and surely could be given access by officers.
Yes….finally We were still refused. We were only allowed to saw the sailing process from Pandu Station.
Pandu Station is a guiding center of big ships that would dock in Cilacap to avoided for stranded or crashed corals.
Well, after being given three bonus venues we were finally arrived Tanjung Intan port. He said that the port was closed for tourism especially for me who would try to visited without specific purpose.
But he had a never give up gene. He told to security officers that he was taking a guest. And finally they gave us access … ..The incredible Mr. Fatchul ….
Finally I enter into this logistic port
riding a motorcycle behind a coal truck makes the clothes being black … hehehe
Well, when I arrived near the coal ship, I tried to captured the IVS KAWANA and PUTRI SEJATI coal ships.
But my action didn’t continue for long because there was security officer who came to me on his motorcycle and said that I should get out from there because I was considered to entered without the permission of internal security and I didn’t wear PPE (Personal Protection Equipment).
Finally I had to got out without long negotiation … .Anyway, this experience became a closing part of my trip in Cilacap that I always remembered.
Okay then there wasn’t other purpose than had to back to Whiz Hotel Sudirman and got ready to Jakarta.
Wait for my other acts while in Cilacap that I had not told yet … .thanks guys.

2. Second ship in the middle of article is guiding ship to mine ships which will mooring.
3. Last ship in below of article. That is coal ships from Kalimantan island in north of Java Island.
