The work on our road continues in ernest. They are even going so far as to replace the broken water pipes under the road. They really should have laid hollow steel pipes and run the water pipes through them but that costs more money…
A week ago we went to the lake with friends. We hired a boat to take us for a ride and to a picnic spot. On the way back he took us by a statue of Jesus that is in the process of being made. Quite impressive. Not really helpful in any way, but impressive.
Lately Brynne and her friend Z have been playing with some local kids, including one who is our guards niece. They taught them hide and seek and Duck, Duck, Goose. They also love to play on our swing set.
I’ve started teaching English to a group of 10 adult Indonesians. It’s been a fun new challenge for me and they are all eager to learn!
