Hello, Chris.  Greetings from Indonesia!
My name is Zi and I've been dreaming to visit America one day.  Hopefully someday it can come true. Lol.
I've read that you're now working in a library?  Woah, that's so cool!  I love library, always spend my free time ther after school.  It's rather unfortunate that recently many local libraries in my town closed down.  They usually sold their collection to neighborhood people, and I ended up buying a bunch.  Hahaha.
Nice to know you!  Best wishes.

Hello Chris,
Greetings from Indonesia.  My name is Nisa and I live in Jakarta, the capital city of Indonesia.  yesterday, we just celebrate our independence day.  This postcard shows you a "graveyard" in Toraja.  They have such a unique funeral ceremony.  If someone died, they will keep the body for sometime and one day, in the ceremony, the dead body will walk by his own to his graveyard.  They say it's magic.  I can't explain any logical explanation for this.  You can search "The Walking Corpses."  Have a nice day!  Nisa

Hello Chris, I am Sititie. Greetings from equator.
Most people in Indonesia eat rice as a main food, that's why farmers do rice planting to provide enough rice.  Here we do in traditional way as you see in postcard.  When harvesting season comes, they also cut the paddy with manual, not by machine.
Best wishes &Happy Postcrossing.
