Hello! I’m LinKai Jiang. I’m blogging for the internship group in Indonesia. I’ll spend two weeks in Jogya for langauge classes then eight weeks in romantically famed “Island of Gods”–Bali. I’m travelling with Medeleine, David and Claire to Jogya. After spending over 30 hours in a plane my head suffered from bulging pain. I took my first Tylenol pill ever in 18 years. Unfortunately for me and Claire there were no tickets for us from Bali to Joyga we had to spend a night in Bali. I carried my worsened headache and spent a night at Termana’s house in Bali-our in-country coodinator. We were enthusiastically welcomed. Termana’s family made the stay very pleasant. I melted down on my bed right after a cold shower. My impression of Balinese windows is that they’re not meant for isolation, at least audio wise. The motorcycles in the bustling streets and gamelan pratices accompanied my dreams and wakefulness throughout the night. I woke up at 2am refreshed and decided to read few pages of Stud Terkel.
Now, we’re in Sanata Dharma University, lodging in the faculty houses. The campus beauty, no doubt, is soothing for my headache. I’ll upload some pictures next time–until then.
