Hey friends, family and fellow bloggers,
It’s about time I post again, but when you are enjoying your atmosphere so much, getting on the internet doesn’t seem so appealing. But, I get a free 30 minutes here at the local KFC (they are all over Asian cities) where they have three computers. How convenient.
So currently I am in Bogor, Indonesia. Home to one of the most famous botanical gardens in the world, it is what attracted me here and I have to say, there were some amazing trees and all sorts of variations of nature I had never seen before. It’s wonderful to see all the forms of this planet. I’ll be sure to post some pictures later.
I have spent the past week exploring the town my family used to make its home for many years, Bandung. Nicknamed the “Paris of Java,” it is a charming town though it suffers now from an over population of people. Indonesia is the 4th most populated country in the world following China, India and USA.
The weather has been great, all around 67-83 degrees fahrenheit. I have visited the same places my grandparents and great grandparents used to frequent and I am getting a much better idea of what sort of lifestyle my family had lived these 70 plus years ago.
The trip shall soon wind down as I need to go back to the states for work with World Vision and assisting with some summer projects, some of which include working and sailing my boat and doing some landscaping with the family in California.
I have been hanging with local Indonesians everyday and the couchsurfing group here is the strongest one yet I have encountered. They are a fun and hospitable bunch.
