Visit to the beach
Just got back from three great days at the coast. Everyone warned us ahead of time, "Don't go! Not now! With the Idul Fitri holiday the traffic will be terrible, the hotel rates sky high, and the beaches crowded."
The roads were deserted, we found a really cheap place, and had the beaches to ourselves. So much for the expert opinions.
It was a 2 1/2 hour trip from Karawaci to where we stayed at the coast. But, unlike Kenyan pot-holed roads and our Kenyan air-conditionless van, these roads and our new van made the trip seem like a 20-minute dream. Great weather and great waves has Rebecca saying we should drive over here once a month. We'll see.
Looking forward to another week and a half of holiday. Will try to photos of the neighborhood, house, and school in the next couple of days.
