Where is Tim?
Today was Indonesia’s Independence Day. Independence Day (Indonesian: Hari Kemerdekaan, colloquially known as Tujuhbelasan (the seventeenth) is a national holiday in Indonesia commemorating the anniversary of the Indonesia’s Proclamation of Independence on 17 August 1945. It was made a national holiday by then-President Sukarno in 1953.
We were invited to the local village to participate in their festivities, which included food, alcohol and kareoke. Interesting, the women waited until all the men ate before they themselves began to eat. Hmmm.
