Selamat pagi! After a couple of weeks of touring around we’re finally getting settled into our new home in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.
As I was preparing for the whole Pac-Rim trip, I always thought that this particular part of the trip would be the most challenging: we will be here the longest, I have almost no communication skills in the local language, and Gareth will have the most work to do. I’m sure I’ll muddle through with a few miscommunications and wrong turns in taxis, and in the end maybe my Indonesian will actually improve! It’s just that making those kinds of mistakes seem a bit more stressful with Hugo
We spent the first day here unpacking and getting to know our neighborhood. We’re in a house a bit back off the main road on a small lane.
We found a rambutan tree.
Hugo was amused by the blue eggs.
We interacted with the not-so-wild life.
We bought some ripe rambutans to take home.
We ate them later while waiting for the rain to stop.
