The grandmother of my friend stated when I left after being their guest for 7 days. “Our ancestors were enemy, you are family” I have no words for the appreciation and endless respect I have for this woman who personally suffered under the Dutch garrison. Not our ancestors but she personally saw criminal Dutchman committing (war)crimes and faced the Dutchman now again and offered warm hospitality. This is the way modern Aceh people are. Always showing great hospitality and if you are interested in their beautiful culture they are happy to give full explanation of their way of life
