Over Easter we took the opportunity to make one last trip to Wamena. An MAF family that is on furlough graciously allowed us the use of their beautiful home. This home is not on the MAF base there but kind of “out in the country”. Because of this, it was very quiet which is something we very much enjoyed. Our home in Sentani has roads on three sides making it a rather noisy place to live. We enjoyed our time in Wamena:
No sweating – Wamena is at 6,000 ft elevation (I think…)
Time just relaxing in a chair reading a book and drinking coffee
Time with friends.
Beautiful nature. One day we joined some of the other expats who live there on a hike up a hill to a place called White Sands. On another day Hugo and I joined a friend on a bike ride to the hydro electric dam that powers the city.
