Good morning, indeed. I woke up at 4AM, which serves me right I guess for passing out at 8:30 last night. It has been a whirlwind few days so far here in Jakarta. After a tremendously long voyage (about 45 hours), the other 30 English Teaching Assistants and I arrived on Sunday morning. I knew being in a different time zone would be strange, but it is still a wonder to me that most of the world as I know it is living a different day altogether than I am most of the time.
We are doing orientation things in the hotel and getting to know one another and the local Jakarta bustle.
