Asian Deaf Catholic Conference 2

National monument

We spent quite a few hours in these three buses this week. On the first full day, after breakfast we boarded them to go the Indonesian National Monument.
Inside building below the large monolith, a guide gave a brief summary of Indonesia history which interpreters relayed in sign language.
As might be expected many school children were at the monument for field trips. These students were waiting their turn to see the exhibits.
The exhibit hall had four walls of colorful, historically accurate dioramas with figures (not paintings) to depict important scenes in Indonesia’s past.
Later, back outside, we ate a box lunch on the monument’s platform before boarding the buses to go to the next stop.
