Yesterday after a cultural event, I went with Brad and Aleida (Debby) to Verizon and purchased a new phone and Ipad. If anyone would like my new telephone number, email me and I’ll send it to you. email@example.com.
That was a step forward to my acclimation back in the United States. There is more work to come…get health insurance, my car out of storage, a place to live and an income of some sort.
I have been invited to speak to two Rotary clubs and will do that as soon as I can get some photos printed or create a short photo-show on my lap-top. My grandson,Brandon, the family king of family technology, has a lot to show me this morning.
Yesterday before going the long trial and error of picking a phone, I went with son, Brad and daughter-in-law Debby to a Bali, Indonesian holiday celebration in a Richmond home. There, several Balinese women, in their colorful dress, performed their traditional dances. A gamelan band played the traditional music for the dancers.
The women and the men sat and conducted a ritual prayer and ceremony before the dancing began. After the dance, my favorite food in the world…Indonesian, was served.
So now, I feel I’ve been to Indonesia.
