a happy new year

As it has been a little tradition for new year I will be working on the ambulance. Today only until 22:00 so there will be some time to celebrate as well. For you the fellow readers of this blog, I wish you a happy new year with some pictures from work:


Ever wondered how it looks inside the ambulance if you turn of the lights and then drive with flashlights?


Of course more mundane things happen here as well, like sometimes checking how heavy your boots actually are.


Or teaching the young people how to sew.


Night time at the hospital


And if there is no work we are allowed to rest. Which will certainly not happen tonight.

Happy Malay New Year and PMI Mentwawi Operations

Some of my friends from PMI have been involved with the PMI disaster relief operations at Mentawi and Obama was in Indonesia. See Indonesisch Blog for that as well.

They distributed relief goods and helped around in Mentawi and the northern part of Bengkulu province, now most of them have returned to Bengkulu City or Curup. Others from PMI Surabaya have been involved with the relief operations around Merapi.

And to all people in Indonesia and Malaysia: Happy New Year!
