We have a car!
It took a while to find a vehicle that is 1) big enough, 2) affordable, and 3) in good condition. But I think we managed to get all three. Our branch president, Rinaldo Kasanwidjojo, called us last weekend to tell us his neighbor was selling an Isuzu Trooper and if we want to see it we should call him fast because he’s asking a great price.
We called the owner, he brought it over, we test drove it and kicked the tires and looked under the hood… and then we bought it.
The thing is huge! Most of the cars on this island are little sub-compact smart cars, and the big ones are little mini SUV’s. This thing is a monstrously huge SUV.
We wanted to give it a name and it didn’t take long to come up with something. It’s a big white whale… so we named it after the fictional giant white sperm whale, Moby Dick. We’re grateful to have Moby in our family and we look forward to exploring the island with him. (Or her?)
