This part was the sole reason for this adventure in the first place. We started planning this trip so that we would end up spending Christmas in Jakarta with my father-in-law. This part of the trip was the opposite of Frankfurt. It was crowded with things to do every minute of every day as his dad wanted to show us around his new hometown.
As soon as we landed in Jakarta, we turned around and took the hour flight to Bali for three days with the intent to try out our new scuba diving certificates. We explored the temples, experienced the religion and culture, and enjoyed the food. My favorite part of this trip was the Kecak and Fire Dance at the Uluwatu temple. I love music and dance and this was an immersion of the both set with a sunset backdrop with a fire finish.
We came back to Jakarta late Christmas Eve to spend Christmas hanging out around his home. His dad took us around town to museums, local resturaunts, and finishing with the mall and finally watching the latest in the Star Wars saga. I would have never gotten to seen all I had in Indonesia without his dad's planning and enjoyed every last minute, no matter how exhausted I was after it all.
I started a blog so I can look back and see my life through the eyes of the books I read. A book a day keeps reality away!
