SCIENCE FAIR

The last two days of last week the school arranged a science fair. The first day the parents were specially invited, the last day some classes from nearby schools were invited. The children had a performance that they had been practising on for a long time. Daniel’s class had a presentation of the life cycle of a butterfly. Joakim’s class sang the rainbow song and a song about recycling and taking care of the earth. Erik’s class had a presentation of all the things you find in a garden, in the jungle and in the zoo. Otherwise there were stands with different activities, competitions and a quiz. The children enjoyed themselves and we got to take lots of pictures!

Since we are talking about scientific things we have to include a little weather report here. By now we should be getting close to the winter season. June, July and August are the winter months here. In this time the temperature in the night will go below 25 degrees, and sometimes even below 20 although we have not yet experienced that. The temperature in the day will still be above 30, but because of a much reduced humidity it will still feel a lot more comfortable. It also gets very windy at this time of year, with cold winds coming in from Australia. Since this is also the dry season there is a lot of dust and sand blowing around. But as we have mentioned before things here are often quite unpredictable, and things don’t always follow the book. So the reality is that this month has been the warmest for us so far, with temperatures close to 38 degrees and a very high humidity. The last days we have even had some heavy rain again…The heavy rain stopped 2 months ago, and the last month we have had no rain at all, but now the dark clouds are rolling back in and we are wondering what is happening…Even the Indonesians who are very good at taking things as they come seem to be a bit puzzled…
