Muhammad’s Birthday

Sunday was Muhammad’s (the Muslim prophet) birthday, so all over Indonesia were parades, festivals, etc.  Sunday after Church, we walked back to the Jeffery’s apartment and walked through a public park where a lot of this was going on.  The parades were earlier in the day, so we missed those, but a lot of the people were still hanging around.

Pretty cool tree – kind of like a Banyan Tree – the small branches grow down and take root.  The larger trees in the park are supposedly a couple hundred years old.

Recycling trash “cans”on the street corner.  Actually they’re clay pots marked plastic, glass, paper, etc.

The young teenage girls LOVE to take “photo” with DeeAnn.  (But not with me – it’s a cultural thing…)

These “vertical” gardens are quite popular – small potted plants stacked up a frame.  They look great
