Belitung

I am back in France.  Here goes according to my lense of the three days of visit to the island where my parents were born.  One of the most important three days of our two months vacation in Indonesia.  The no-tourist beaches, bite-size crabs, village chickens (freely translated from "ayam kampung"), self-service coconuts from the trees...   
How Tanjung Pendem looks in the morning, where my great grandmother collected hundreds of small crabs to feed her ducks.







This is the front porch of my dad's childhood.




Home made fish chips, conveniently posed at the front porch of almost every house in Belitung.

Having a Big Stomach

Today I am 4 days past 34th weeks, the movement inside has been more intense than it has been before. It tickles me gently, at times not too gently, but no matter how intense it makes me proud everytime. Why do I love this being so much, even if she isn't being born just yet.

It gets harder to walk longer, heavy, for sure. But the urge from the doctor to lay down on the left side has prevent me to do more stuff I'd like to do. The jewelry has been a bit abandoned consequently.

But right now all those negative feeling vanished and what seems to be more important is to have the fetus inside me grow.

It's 6 more weeks before the due date, if I am lucky you can come out at any moment in three weeks. Am I ready, are we ready, yes, no. …
