They've certainly seen some incredible sites while here.
I had spoken to my manager that I was in contact with the Wall Street Indonesia people, just so he'd know. But, I felt really sad about giving him my 30 days notice. The center director and he have both built a team of people who really seem like 'family'. We work well together; help each other; and have been very successful here - reaching our goals month after month, leading to bonuses every month I have been here. I hope to help establish this same kind of team work in Indonesia.
So Yanti & the kids go back next week (Jan 16). She'll get them into school and see about her starting at the local university. Plus, she'll start getting everything ready for my return two weeks later( Feb 2). I'll only have about one week in Bali, then Yanti & I will fly to Jakarta. We'll work together to find me a nice apartment near the school; get me setup with whatever I'll need; then I'll start work on Feb 12 and the school is set to open on the 21st.
Then Yanti will head back to Bali and get a few things ready to ship to me in Jakarta - my computer; a microwave oven; kitchen supplies; etc. With her help it should be an easy transition. Our plan is that either I'll fly (1 hour) back to Bali once a month or they'll fly to Jakarta. Of course, I'll miss them all, but I'll be very busy and they will be too. Since we want to build a house in Bali and live there, we felt it was better for the girls to continue their school there :-)
The apartments in Jakarta are about the same price range as here but you get so much more - pool; fitness center; spa; etc. So, I'm looking forward to going to the gym several time a week (NOT kidding).
Yanti & I are planning on return to California in August. I've put the last of my belongs in a storage unit there and we want to get it all out of there. So, we'll have a few garage sales; give some things to charity; give some things to friends; give some things away; and take a few things back to Bali with us; the rest we'll store at my brother and sisters garages until we can move it back to Bali.
I'll be great to see my friends and family, as it will have been more than a year since my last visit (Feb. 2006).
