Lunch was at this Chinese place – which apparently was worried about not knowing what day it was so they had a dozen calendars on both walls.

Pick your fish out of the tank

This fresh fish is 31,000 Rp per 100 grams or $10.25 / lb.  No charge to cook it.  It was absolutely delicious.  Fresh fish dinner for two – about $20.

Only about 1/3 of the LDS hymnbook is in Indonesian.  This is the translation team (far left and far right are from Salt Lake) – the rest are native Indonesians who speak outstanding English -charged with translating the rest of the hymnbook.  A tricky job as Bahasa Indonesian uses more words, the phrasing is different and it’s tough to make words rhyme.
