After 36 hours in transportation of all sorts, the first half of ID10 finally landed in Surabaya, Indonesia. As tired as I was, I was equally excited. We finally made it to Indonesia after a week of visa delays. After spending the first night in Surabaya, we hopped on another bus and headed to Kediri, where we’ll be training for the next 3 months. It’s now been 3 days since I’ve been in Indonesia and my days have been filled with a lot of important information, most importantly Bahasa Indonesian (the official language of Indonesia)!
I’m so excited to finally be learning Bahasa Indonesian. I’ve been having a harder time picking up the language than I had anticipated, but I keep reminding myself, we’ve only spent 2 days. With time, I know I will be able to master this language. I’m glad we’ve spent the past 2 days learning as much as we could, because tomorrow we’re moving in with our first host family. I am both excited and scared at the same time since my Bahasa Indonesian is very limited, but I'm R E A D Y !
