Over the past month, I've been very busy with a number of visitors who have ranged from high school friends to family. Having people in town and getting the opportunity to show them around both Jakarta and the country has helped remind me how much I've grown to love the country. Additionally, traveling experimenting with new things is always better with friends and family, consequently over the past month, I have witnessed fire dances and other presentations of the Ramayana with my family, eaten in stairwells - Bill and Jen's favorite part of their trip here :)!, seen amazing coral while snorkeling with Jillian, and supported a local turtle sanctuary. In so many ways, my experience would not have been complete without the chance to share the country, and so, with a heavy, yet excited, heart I am beginning to tell friends and co-workers of my plans to return to the U.S. at the end of the school year.
