Hello. I’m still here! I am getting closer to having my visa finalized. Last week I was in Penang, Malaysia arranging the visa (it has to be done outside Indonesia). I have the sticker in my passport that is good for 1 year. Now I am back in Indonesia, and have submitted a stack of paperwork, my fingerprints, passport photos and paid another fee. It may be a few days before I hear back about that. So now I wait.
The last few weeks have been full of experiences, which I do want to share. I have been very blessed by my time here—now it has been 5 weeks. This post however, is just to say hello, I’m still here, and look forward to stories and pictures of life here, and of teaching.
