In Teunom

We finally arrived in Medan and were met by my parents who used three taxis to get us to the hotel. We got to bed after midnight and awoke early to get to the airport for our trip to the west coast. Some random thoughts: It is nice to have language to communicate with people. Little planes are fun to ride on. We took pictures of some visiting Chinese taking pictures of our girls. The ocean is not developed here without a hotel in sight. Hot and humid. I've always wondered why I didn't grow up in a more native village setting with the Indonesians, but my parents have saved up till now and are doing the village thing full bore. When you can stand in the surf lapping at one's ankles and look back at the coconut tries way above your head a hundred yards back and know that the tsunami's second wave (out of three) was at the level of the trees, the natural power is awe inspiring. God is bigger. Dasen

  1. I'm glad you finally were able to get a "real" experience and ride in a little plane.
