It was really nice to sleep in a real bed last night. D was up first [and often] and finally crawled out of bed around 8:30; he had been up at 6:30 and found Carter playing in the living room. When Carter said he was fine playing by himself, D went back to sleep. MA joined us around 9.
The adults finessed breakfast because we were going out for brunch, a Sunday tradition in this household. It’s both a special family time and an acknowledgement that Mariati doesn’t work on Sunday. Briton drove us to lunch [Kusnadi doesn’t work on Sunday, either] and somehow got us there safely. The streets of Jakarta, and most Asian cities, are crammed with motorcycles sometimes carrying entire families. Several we saw today had drivers and passengers toting building supplies. The motorcycles are like gnats darting and weaving through traffic with little regard for cars,buses
Dinner was pizza from Pizza Hut – plain for the boys, pepperoni/tomato/onion for the adults; the pepperoni is made with beef since the Muslims won’t eat pork, but the pizza was delicious anyway. A little before 7, the boys went upstairs to prepare for bed and MA tool a short snooze on the couch waiting for a “good night” from them. By 7:45, MA could wait no longer and went to bed.
