Muslim New Year

Good morning from Jakarta!

As I mentioned last time, yesterday was a national holiday here in celebration of the Muslim new year.

We had the day off school and although I had plans for a relaxing afternoon by the pool, we ended up heading south to visit Ragunan zoo!

It was a really fun day out, and totally worth the early morning!

More often than not, you get drinks in a bag rather than a cup here!

My favourite part of the day was the elephants – not only are you able to get really close to the animals here, but when the elephants rode past we were able to pet them!!! So cool! 🙂

In the evening we drank wine and ate cheese (a big treat seeing as both are near impossible to find here) and watched The Jungle Book – a perfect end to a perfect day.
