The bike on the left – carrying greenery of some kind…
There’s a million motorcycles in Indonesia, so there are a million tire shops just like this one.
Such a typical corner store….
When Br. Edi was driving us, he took this shortcut. It’s a good thing he knew where we were…
Schoolgirls walking home
Teenagers in love – even here….
This Vespa is ancient…
Right across the street from Bina Anugrah school was this lady sweeping her ‘yard’ .
Across the street from the Church is a large taman (park). Today was a holiday, so there were a lot of people out enjoying the nice day, so DeeAnn and I went for a short walk around the park
She was excited to have her and her sons’ foto taken by the Bule’s
The food carts are ever-present and everywhere, 24/7
Serving bakso (meatball) soup….
Grandma with cucu on a kiddie ride.
At the park was a little flea market and I bought this really cool, very old wood topeng (mask). They are used in Javanese or Balinese topeng dances and by appearance, I’m told the buck teeth indicate this was probably a character in the dance that provided comic relief. It cost a whopping 20,000 Rupiah ($1.50) (It actually looks cooler in person than in this pic!)
Houses along railroad tracks are the same around the world – they are typically where the less fortunate have to live….
A tiring travel day – train back to Jakarta, taxi to airport, flight to Semarang
When we checked into the hotel, there was a country band playing off the lobby. These guys were REALLY good and they had a song list of 428 (!!) OLD country songs. The songs were all in English (a few in Spanish) but they didn’t speak a lick of English!
Tomorrow we’re working with Limbs for the Limbless – they were here a month ago to measure and assess and tomorrow they will fit the limbs to the recipients. Should be a great day!
