Odds & Ends

Our next trip is to the Bekasi Ward Christmas party (a 3-day extravaganza – yes you read that right), but we are only going for one day.  So we leave in the morning, drive the 3 hours to the festivities, then leave at 6:00 am Friday morning because we need to be back to Senopati (the Mission Office) to help put on the Jakarta Zone Christmas Party.

So, in the meantime, a few more random pics:

The 50-story construction project outside our apartment.  The yellow machine is the concrete pumper (incredibly loud, especially at 3:00 am) with plenty of supply lined up.

Our apartment building is amazingly clean – they wash the lobby windows inside and out and mop the marble floor (inside and outside) every day.

And, they vacuum and clean the pool every morning at 6:00 am.
