Odds & Ends

It’s been an “office week” to finish a year-end report (even though we’ve only been here a few months) and paperwork.  Our next trip isn’t until next week, so in the meantime:

The Moss’s and the Baird’s are leaving soon, so we are trying to have a few meals together before they go.  We found a great Indonesia/Chinese/Thai place right near our apartment.  A great meal for all six of us was Rp 750,000 ($55).

Did some grocery shopping today and ran into a few “unusual” items:

Dinner at the Tandiman’s – a great family.  He’s a former Mission President and is now Asian Area Seminary Director.  Took my guitar and had a great time singing the oldies!
