roaming the world and enjoying the scenery...

Around the house

Just so the wrong impression isn’t given, we are pretty darn excited about our new digs here in Jakarta. Rats aside, things have gotten off to a very positive start. I know Susan has emailed a few pictures to a few people, so I figured I’d better make like a squished tomato and “ketchup.” Those of you who’ve seen Pulp Fiction know what I’m talking about; those of you who haven’t just need to realize that’s now one of Breck’s favorite plays-on-words.

In any case, here we go with the 2-minute intro to our trip here and our new home:

After a day spent at the Minneapolis airport, watching all sorts of planes (except our own) take off and land, we finally ended up getting our entire trip rerouted (at least until we got to Hong Kong). The flying time to Hong Kong was just under 20 hours, and we had the chance to check out the view from the airport for a bit before the last leg into Jakarta.

Here's a plane touching down with Minneapolis in the background

Once in town, we were met at the airport and whisked away to a luxury hotel, where we spent the next few days meeting some of our new colleagues and reacquainting ourselves with our internal clocks. Once our jet-lag was a little bit more under control, we were taken to our houses.

Rather than go through a whole descriptive paragraph, I’ll let the first few pictures tell the main story (and I think you can tell what our favorite “room” is so far!). Suffice to say, we are very pleased to be here and are looking forward to sharing our adventures with all!

  1. Your favorite “room” is huge! Love it! Must hop over at some point. It’ be a crime not to 😉 Would work as a guest room, too!

  2. Congrats Stutz family, looks wonderful! Although the pool is a little small so I’d complain, he he!
