    Birthdays and Farewells

    January 19, 2018 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Our school is quite small and we're only about 50 teachers at our school, about 20 of whom are German. So, in general, colleagues, employees and members of the staff are much closer to each other than at a typical school in Germany. Which means that if you're having a party, you basically invite everyone who's working at your school. Last week, the first big birthday/farewell party (our interns are leaving us) took place - at the pool of our school. We also went out for Thai food one night... but see for yourselves :-)Read more

    Trying out diffent kinds of food

    August 29, 2017 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    The indonesian cuisine is different from Thai, Vietnames or Indian food. A lot of ingredients are fried or deep fried, drinks tend to be awefully sweet, it's a challenge to find dishes with a lot of vegetables not to mention salads. Rice (nasi) is very common and dishes are usually VERY spicy (And I love spicy food). But there are a lot of dishes and drinks to discover. You've got an amazing choice of fruits and you CAN get any kind of vegetable on the market and make European style salad. You can even find feta cheese in the supermarket, however for the price of about 8 Euro for 200 gr. Muesli without sugar can be bought for about 12 Euro (400 gr), Yoghurt costs about 3 Euro (500 gr.). So I've started to eat porridge for breakfast :-) I try to go to local small warungs (little simple restaurants) as often as possible, however during the week I eat at school. We've got a really good choice of indonesian food at two different warungs and a cafeteria which serves both, western and indonesian food. You never go hungry in this country!Read more

    Earthquake

    January 23, 2018 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    So that's what it feels like when the earth is shaking 😯. Pretty scary experience especially when you are teaching on the second floor. Instead of hiding underneath the tables - as we were supposed to - everybody quickly left the building. Fortunately nobody got hurt. We were all sent home though as part of security measures.Read more

    Learning about life in BSD (City)

    August 14, 2017 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    So many things to do... at first I repaired my bike and equiped it with my German basket and lock. I then went to the local market by bike (very, very dangerous as there are practically no sidewalks and you get to ride with the motorbikes). I bought tons of fresh vegetables and fruits and then discovered a cosy little place called WOOW where I was able to eat a non spicy dish and got a real café latte :-). More shopping followed... all those things I needed to give away in Germany because I didn't have the time to take them to my storage place, I need here.... which is a little frustrating. My fish keep me company, but one is too eager and continuously jumps out of the pond which means I have to take two musli bowls to throw him back into the pond. I am really afrait that he will suffocate, because when he does this whenI am not here, noone will save him. This morning I found him outside again ....Read more

    Pimping up my garden and house

    August 14, 2017 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    The people who know me well know how much I love to decorate my living space. Since all my favorite stuff is still on the way... on some ship between Hamburg and Jakarta.... I felt the need to buy at least some things to brighten up my house. I've never had so much space (and I never will again btw) and I sometimes feel left in this place. I did not expect it to be so hard to find nice and affordable objects so I mainly concentrated on the garden. Having a lotus flower in my back yard and a frangipani on my front lawn is a dream come true <3Read more

    Birthdays and Farewell part 2

    January 19, 2018 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Germans and Indonesians alike really enjoyed our little pool party. We also had some suprise guests - at least 15 frogs joined us later that night :-) The food, which was prepared by Ibu Har, was very tasty like alwas - and everybody seemed to enjoy the get together. The later the evening the more creative we became concerning dance mooves and headgear.Read more

    Scarcely escaped death...

    February 3, 2018 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Yesterday I discovered this little bugger...was able to kill it before it bit or stung me.... Not really sure what it is but it does look like some kind of scorpion
