Two Images To Think Over This Weekend

Kindergarten children wearing batik apparel participate in a parade to celebrate the Islamic New Year in Pamekasan, East Java on Thursday. Thousands of elementary and junior high school students in Pamekasan also joined the parade. (Antara/Saiful Bahri, found here

Parents and students wade across the Surantih River to reach a school in Jorong Lambung Bukik, Sutera district, West Sumatra, on Wednesday. The children of at least 35 families are forced to wade across the river every day due to the lack of a bridge. (Antara/Arif Pribadi, as seen here)

Oh hello there,  how was your week? Sorry for being MIA. I've been swamped with excessive workload that came over to my desk after my colleague Fith going for three-week holiday. A lot of work means a very demanding week but somehow I like having a lot of things in my hands.

Any plans for this weekend? There will be a Tulip Bazaar on Saturday from 9 a.m to 5 p.m. at Erasmus Huis and Europe On Screen will start next week, you'd better pick your movie from now. 

Have a lovely weekend!

P.S. There are many students across Indonesia who face the problem depicted in picture #2. You can help change the condition in Jorong village by signing this petition. I just did.
