The student life

Waldemar and I love to learn. Whatever catches our interest, we read up and study until we satisfy our curiosity. We seem to be perpetual students.

We have a bunch of books and links for learning the Indonesian language. We're researching about Bandung itself. Whenever we can, we talk to people who have visited or lived there.

Sometimes I think my head will explode. It takes longer to capture information, but if I can tuck it into what I already know, it makes good sense.

One of the things we look forward to when we get to Bandung is seeing how other people live. It will be our fourth live-in culture. In each one, people have unique worldviews and expectations. There's no perfect setting ... so there are many ways to adjust within the community.

W likes to gather information on how things work and how things are done. I love the stories people know about themselves and their surroundings. Who will we meet? And what will we learn? We're excited to find out!
