A Short Weekend Trip

>> Oct 28, 2013

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.

Blue touches can be seen on the uniforms and flag.
Saturday morning, we gathered at a nearby mosque to welcome my BIL and SIL from going hajj.  Nice to know they are in health condition. Then we had a lunch in my BIL’s house while listening to their stories.

The bus that took my BIL and SIL from the airport was coming!

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. 
I saw this short carnival with interesting 'creatures' and kids sitting on the back of each creature. Captured around Indramayu area, sorry I have no further information to share about this carnival event.

Hi Lina, I am sure six hours longer in the bus was pretty upsetting. It sounds like you still had a lovely visit. There is so much unrest these days for so many countries. I pray for peace in the world everyday.

The carnival was a nice event even it you did not know the reason. Smile. Your nephew looks so cute and small in the beautiful Mosque.

xo, Jeanne

I too had a weekend trip to stay with family and it took six hours to drive there and six hours back...but it was worth every minute.
We didn't see any demonstrations but there was slight traffic jams around rush hour on one part of the journey.
It can be so tiring so I understand you being sleepy.
You did well to post and have great photos for Blue Monday!
Thanks for sharing :D
