Here are a few views from our apartment at night. We are on the 36th floor.
I remember how the grocery baggers at Basha's would always so kindly wheel my full basket out to the car and unload the groceries from the cart into my trunk. I joked a few times and asked them if they would please come home with me and unload them from the car into my kitchen...well now we have this very helpful young man who unloads the groceries from the car onto this lovely brass luggage cart and takes them up the elevator right into our kitchen. It's amazing!
General Conference is broadcast one week late here to allow for translation. We flew to Yogyakarta to attend the Saturday sessions and then took a five hour bus ride north to Semarang to watch the Sunday sessions. It was supposed to be a three hour ride--it's only 74 miles distance--but due to heavy rainstorms and traffic jams the whole way it took a lot longer. And someone got sick all over President's bag... But hey we squeezed in some shopping the day before (in the rain) and the incredible orchids here make up for a lot of other things!
