The trip was announced by hubby a month before the departure date. It made me so uneasy. There were a lot of things to be considered. The preparation for the trip, the itinerary and all.
We had to go early to the port to have luggage checked and board early. Baby was with us, he was 4 months that time. That was so difficult for us to move with pieces of luggage and with baby. We had to queue a very long snaky line.
When we already boarded, it was such a relief. We could relax and feel better amd baby could lie down. We just slept for 7 hours then when we woke up, we were there in a different place.
It was not actually a smooth sail, we met heavy rain in the middle of the sea. I couldn’t help but to panic. That didn’t last long anyway. Maybe for 30 minutes only. Praise God.
We were fetched by sister-in-law from the pier.
In the house:
Baby was carried one after the other. Never put down. All of them welcomed me warm-heartedly. My fear turned into the opposite.
Day 1: (Arrival)
Meeting all relations. Names hard to memorise but faces becoming more and more familiar. Faces of everybody showed gladness of our arrival. We were spared early by visiting neighbors because they knew we were more than tired. We clambered up the bed.
We have to wake up early and took a bath. But we had to walk a kilometer to do that. After a long w alk, we reached a stream. We had to bathe in a stream. We had to do the laundry in the stream. We can also fetch water from the stream. Stream is indeed the source of life in their arEa.
