Last week, we were able to take a trip down to the beach on the south coast of Java for a few days. This was a much needed vacation, since things have been nonstop since we arrived, and we had just finished the first unit of our language learning. We were both pretty wiped out, so this was an excellent opportunity to istirahat (rest)! The beach was beautiful, though maybe not the best for swimming. However, after a few days Elizabeth really started to enjoy playing in the sand!
We needed the rest, and came back ready to go with more language learning. I don’t think we realized how tired and stressed we were until we got out of the house and went to the beach!
