Kite flying, Jakarta





It is slightly windy in Jakarta at the moment, I don't know whether this is the usual for this time of year or not.
Of the last few weeks we have seen lots of kites flying in the street behind our home. A few of them have gotten stuck in the barb wire on top of our 3.5 metre fence. Pak S. got them down the other day and the kids have been having so much fun with them.
This afternoon Chelsea still had home work to do, and as she didn't want to miss out on the fun took it with her.
I found her book and pencil out in the middle of the garden and her running two laps then doing two maths problems, again and again.......

Remember this post on the strange fruits on our vine, it turns out that Adele was right. They are loofahs. We are all going to have a home grown loofah for the bathrooms.
You can see a few more in the tops of the photos.

Jen I grew the loofahs in qld washed, dried and cut rounds to put in my homemade soaps. I found them good when your hands needed a good scrub after gardening, when I had forgotten to put on gloves. I found it better to leave them whole for the shower and rub some soap onto them. good luck with them Adele
