How have you been? I hope you are in good spirits! I read in a newspaper that there was an earthquake in Sulawesi. Are you OK? Are your families, friends OK? Are the other participants of FASID fieldwork program, who live in Makassar: Syafar, Dijah, Hasni, Ady, Armin, Mr. Roem, Samsul OK? Do you have some news from Kacicci whether there are OK? I knew from the report that the earthquake took place in the north of Sulawesi, but you never now... In Japan we have a lot of earthquakes, but sometimes you feel them even they occur far away.
Here is everything normal, although Sapporo is cold nowadays . Since I don't live in Tokyo, from where the majority of the participants of our fieldwork program come, I don't meet them. But I often think about our stay in Kacicci, about the people I met there. It was in many ways fantastic experience.
Keep in touch!
With best wishes,
