Received 11th June 2015, from Yunia in Indonesia, via Postcrossing

I’ve been Postcrossing for 9 years but this is my first postcard from Indonesia! How peaceful does this look, makes me wonder why I lock myself away in this dingy flat in Vauxhall. Yunia writes about the Indonesian Mengajar programme, a non-profit organisation that recruits and trains young people as teachers across the islands. She has also included some gorgeous stamps, a special edition for Indonesia’s ‘Year of the Rabbit’.
