Our Beautiful Island

One of the things we’ve noticed since we returned to our home here is that this place is just beautiful!  I guess before we returned to the US in November, we’d lived here in Indonesia long enough that we didn’t notice it anymore.  I’ve been taking some pictures the last few weeks, and I wanted to post a few from my trip yesterday.  I was on my way back from a church service in the village, and as the sun was setting I snapped a few pictures on my phone:2012-04-13 17.31.14

You might recognize this one; it’s the new banner on our blog:

There’s a little sliver of rainbow right in the middle, just to the left of the hill, but it’s hard to make out (gotta love cheap phone cameras, they don’t do this place  justice):

And one more panorama just for fun:


This one is from our front porch:


One of my goals is to start snapping more pictures of beautiful things while we’re here; it reminds us of the beauty around us in the midst of a sometimes-difficult life here, and it helps me show all of you the wonderful, unique things about this country and its people.
