A Year in Numbers

It’s hard to believe that we’ve been living in Indonesia for 1 year (or 365 days).
After 2 trips to Singapore, we lived as temporary residents for 232 of those days.
Our Indonesian cell phone numbers have 13 digits,
and our home phone number has 6 digits.

We have been to 6 countries,
traveled through 14 different airports,
and obtained 1 visa, 3 visas on arrival, and 1 letter of approval.
2 of our suitcases need to be replaced.
Ally has traveled off-site 3 times without us.

We have made 55 Amazon orders,
with a total of 168 items.
Some of those items included 6 pairs of socks, 8 printer cartridges, and 2 tennis rackets.
It takes 14 days to receive an Amazon order from the DHL warehouse in Ohio.

This blog consists of 64 posts.
It has been viewed in 74 different countries,
including 4 views in Cote d’lvoire and 6 views in Israel.
The highest number of post views received in a single day is 257.

I’m ashamed to admit that I hoarded 23 cans of black beans and 8 jars of pickles.

We have 63 pirated DVD’s from Bali.
A single DVD costs 10,000 rupiah (US$0.88).
Only 8 of those movies are viewable from start to finish.

Ally has grown 3 1/4 inches since we moved to Indonesia.
Kylee has grown 2 1/2 inches.
Tembagapura gets approximately 236 inches of rainfall every year.

We have been on the armored buses 1 dozen more times than the choppers.
A chopper ride up/down the mountain takes approximately 20 minutes.
An armored bus ride up/down the mountain takes approximately 3 hours.
I have gone 352 days without driving.

We experienced 1 minor earthquake and 1 major mudslide.
We had no running water for 5 days and no wifi for 9 weeks.
It takes 2 days to download a movie in Tembagapura.

Our collection of egg carton elastics is up to 127.
