Some warm pictures for all of you freezing folks:)

We had a short school break this week and headed down south for a couple nights to enjoy the beach with our friends Phil and Shelley and their 18-month old daughter, Nadia. It was HOT which was actually kind of a change for us as it's been cool (70's) and rainy in Salatiga lately. We had lots of fun at the beach and when the girls went to bed the adults got to play games. Fun times:)

This was a cool beach we went to one afternoon where Dylan got to surf, and there was this handy cave type thing that shaded Raquel and I.

We also uncovered this ancient man

If you ever wondered what it was like to live in a fish bowl, or maybe like a movie star- here is an example. If you notice the girl on the right is, not so discreetly, photographing the Svoboda's as they swim. This is a regular occurence here wherever we go- I've even heard there are websites that have competitions to see who can post the most pictures of white people. I don't really know why you would want pictures of total strangers, but I'm sure there are enough of us out there now to fill several photo albums.

Below is a video of Raquel. She's been asking to read the story of David and Goliath every night before bed, and has become a little obssessed with giants.
