This was a special day. Regan Moore, Linda Tanini, and I arrived at Padang, West Sumatra. This is our special assignment in Indonesia. We arrived after a brief flight from Jakarta, and we were welcomed by Yulia Sari and Ronal Fujianto. Yulia is our host teacher for our stay, and she is the vice principal at SMK N 5 Padang. She is one of the most generous, smart, and genuine person I have ever met in my life. Ronal is the mechanics teacher at the school, and he drove us all over West Sumatra. He felt very insecure about his English speaking skills, but he has a shining personality.
Yulia and Ronal gave us a wonderful introductory tour to Padang. They took us to the beach, and it was so exciting to learn about the geography of the place. The beaches are lovely, and it was so exciting to learn how close we were to other countries.
