Photo Friday: My Environment

church

One of the many anomalies in Jakarta culture – a Catholic church in a Muslim country. This is what makes my environment so interesting.


A juxtaposition of religion

This is a Catholic church that is in Jakarta, directly across the street from the Masjid Istiqlal (the mosque from my photo a few days ago).  Before moving here, I was given the impression that there was tension between Islam and Christianity in Jakarta, but I’ve not found that yet.  There seems, from the people with whom I’ve spoken, to be a mutual respect.

Also, is it just me, or is the ceiling a little tribute to Darth Vader?  I am a huge fan of all things Star Wars, and sometimes I think I see Star Wars everywhere, but the ceiling really does look a little Vader-ish, right?


Notre Dame, Montreal

I have little energy and little time.  Sorry.  Here’s the Notre Dame basilica in Montreal, Quebec.

Beautiful.
