jakarta-1-2

Most of my May wasn’t too terribly interesting, as I continued living and working in the suburbs of Jakarta. Highlights from the first part of the month included watching Deadpool 2 and Solo, visiting a few new malls, and eating some good vegan food.

In March, I had a one-day trip into Singapore to renew my work visa, and Josh and I made our way into Jakarta a few times.
