Independence Day is a highly celebrated day in Indonesia. Chris and I were expected at all the events. Most of the events are below, however, the UG ceremony will get its own post.
The Independence Day celebration was kicked off with a dinner Saturday night. These are some of my besties. :) We sure do clean up nicely when we are out of our workout clothes. ;)
Aug. 17th "The cutting of the rice".
Not a great picture, but across the field all the departments line up for the ceremony.
The marching band entertained us.
Not the greatest picture, but this was one of probably 5 outfits we had to change in to for the weekend. The top was suppose to be a Kebaya. However, it was freezing that morning and we had to sit outside. So I improvised. ;)
After the UG ceremony, we were back at the soccer field for the flag lowering ceremony. The clouds were moving in... But still no rain!
To end the day, we had a formal dinner at the Lupe. An Indonesian rock band, Stryker, was to play the next night so they joined us for dinner and I got my picture taken with them. I am sooooo cool! ;P
