26 Jul

Selamat pagi (that is HALLO)

Our first "stop" in our tour around the world is Indonesia.

And what a country.  Indonesia consists of five islands in a group of more than 13 000 islands.  Less than 6000 of these islands are inhabited.

We’ve learned so much about this wonderful country.  I made a little book for Xander and each night we read a few pages.  We learned about their manners, religion,  transport, houses, agriculture and animals.

We made a volcano, because there is so many active volcano’s in Indonesia.  That was a lot of fun.

Then we made scatter cushion cover with Batik– In Indonesia they use the Batik method to colour their material.

On Sunday we made an Indonesian Meal.

Rice and coconut milk is some of the main ingredients in Indonesia.  We decided to make a curry with coconut milk and serve that on rice.  Xander loved preparing for the meal and cooking.  It was our first time cooking with coconut milk and I will use it again.  it gives the curry a special taste. 

We made Uli Petataws (Sweet potato Fritters), Pisang Goreng (Fried Banana Cakes), and a chicken curry with coconut milk.  It was our first time cooking with coconut milk and I will use it again.  it gives the curry a special taste. we didn’t like the Sweet potato fritter that much.  The Fried banana cakes was nice with the curry.
