We were up way too early again as usual and headed off for our beautiful morning walk around the neighbourhood, stopping to chat to the ibu ibu and babies as always, but Samudra seemed quiet and tired so we didn’t walk for too long today. Although it was he that was poking me in the eyes, nose, and mouth while laughing and wanting me to wake up and play, he really seemed low on energy when we were up and about and quickly fell back to sleep once we returned home.

There were so many people rummaging through the boxes of second hand goods and clothes and I am hoping they raised alot of money as there were certainly many people there supporting the cause.
Back at home again and Samudra was loving the
