3 Months.

Today marks 3 months since I arrived in Jakarta – It’s hard to believe that it’s been that long since my Bon Voyage party and emotional ride to the airport. I remember getting off the plane and trying to find my luggage as if it were yesterday – I don’t think I’ll be forgetting that feeling of terror for a while!

The time really has flown by though – I’ve taken real comfort in knowing how pleased I was to see friends and workmates again after the Christmas break. I really felt like I was coming home.

I remember being so thrilled to have survived my first week, fortnight, month here that I never could have imagined getting to 3 months – a quarter of a year!! – here. The thought of a year is still pretty daunting but it’s all about taking things a day at a time.

I feel like I’ve finally settled down in my job and day to day life. Of course there are still frustrations – some days I think that this is the most backwards country in the world and wonder why they haven’t worked out how to do the simplest of things more effectively, but I guess that’s what happens when you come from a very developed first world country. Most days, however, I love all the little quirks, and hope I continue to so do.

Here’s to another great 9 months!
