Yogyakarta (Jogja)

Next up was a trip to Yogyakarta (also known as Jogja) so Br/Dr Jarstad could prresent a lecture  at Gadja Mahta University.  Dr. Jarstad’s been going to Gadja Mahta for several years and has old friends here, with several pieces of equipment donated over time.

A typical pedal taxi

The next day was a tour of small clinic that uses our equipment almost every day.  During the week, they use it to test the vision of local school kids:

The kids are SO excited to have their picture taken with a “bule” – a white foreigner and take EVERY opportunity to do so!  Dr. Jarstad, of course, loves to accommodate them!
