… And you can see where our priorities lie!
It has been a whirlwind since our move from Tianjin, China to here: Balikpapan, a port city on the east coast of Kalimantan (a/k/a “Borneo”) Indonesia.* Folks here call it “Kal-Tim,” which is short for Kalimantan Timur (timur means east in Bahasa Indonesia).
First stop? Pasar Kebun Sayur — a huge market selling batik, Dyak handicrafts, produce, every sort of household good and clothing item a soul can think of and … delicious food, of course! Balikpapan’s specialty is seafood — lucky us!
So here’s a short photo tour of our first official outing in Balikpapan. Introducing … Pasar Kebun Sayur!
