It is crazy to think that we are approaching 8 months in country! WOW! How did this happen? We are almost getting to the point that we are not completely "new" at everything any more. Well, at least I feel that way some days....today was not really one of those days...but more on that another time!
Yesterday I went to another of our monthly women meetings. Being in this country you quickly realize that everything revolves around "menjalin hubungan" or building relationships. It is actually quite cool. Our communities are divided into groups and they have monthly meetings. The men all get together one evening a month and the women one afternoon a month. We meet in our neighbors houses and it is an good opportunity to catch up and share information. An awesome opportunity for me to observe culture and show that I want to be a part of the community. I love that each month I can understand more and follow along more. This month I was actually able to read and understand most of the little hand out that they gave us! WAHOO!!!
