Rick's in Gunungsitoli (roughly latitude 1°20′N, longitude 97°50'E). It's the capital of the regency of Nias with a population of around 75 thousand Gunungsitoli is on the north east coast, due north of where the "nias" marker is on the image, the little bay facing east. there's some info here: http://www.fallingrain.com/world/ID/26/Gunungsitoli.html (with map) and here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gunungsitoli though the wikipedia article needs some more info, if anyone has time to edit it.

Draw a line vertically north from the drawing pin - Gunungsitoli is where you hit the coast
