I still feel sleepy right now; we arrived home about two hours after midnight. I had a weekend trip to my husband’s hometown for a family occasion. On Friday morning, my husband and I took a bus to reach our destination. We had a bad traffic jam on a few spots that caused by labor demonstration. Recently I noticed there were several demonstration of labor organizations conducted in different cities separately. Commonly they request for higher wages, the end of outsourcing practice and better health assurance. It’s a pity that most labor demonstrations also involve lots of people and cause heavy traffic jam. Sometimes, the protest leads to destructive actions. My husband took some pictures from the front bus window. The bus ride took six hours longer to arrive at my husband’s hometown.

We went back home the next day –Sunday afternoon. My husband and I had a car ride together with my BIL, SILs and nephew who live in Jakarta. We also faced a traffic jam on the way back home. A tiring car ride but I do had a nice weekend.
