EARTHQUAKE I was driving along the coast road when thecar suddenly lurched to one side. You know what happened? At first I thoughta tire had gone flat but then I saw telegraphpoles collapsing like matchsticks. It’s terrible,isn’t it? Next, guess what? The rocks came tumblingacross the road and I had to get out of the car. When I got back to town, well as I said,there wasn’t much left. My God, that was a nightmare.
Yogyakarta April, 1st 2008Dear Evi and Andi, Just a note to let you know that we.......a wonderful holiday in Bali. It was a really great place. The people are friendly, the foods great, and the weathers a lot better........at home. Can you......it? Most days were pretty....... I.......two or three times a day, but my brother Fachri just.....all his time lying on the beach with his eyes closed.
Last Saturday I......on the bus and........to the north andof the island, It was much (quiet) there than here–verybeautiful, but no tourists. The next day we.......across tothe east coast.......some of the old villages. I.......Balinese–I still cant.......much, but it was fun totry. Fachri actually........it quite well, but he was afraidto open his mouth, so I was the one who talked topeople. Love to your parents. See you soon, I.........Aisha
