We are finally in Yogya and ready to begin homestays!
We spent orientation learning about our group and about our new home for the next 3 months. Yesterday, after 5 days in Dieng, we took a 5-hour bus ride to Yogya–our home for the next 3 1/2 weeks! We spent yesterday night in a hotel so that we could all take a quick swim test, and spent the evening hours doing some impromptu karaoke with the hotel band. Tonight (2/16), we will meet and move in with our homestay families.
All of us are excited and hopeful for what the next month will bring! 🙂
