      1. Holidays are stressful. I have a job where I work with people who have mental issues. I’m a crisis counselor) and this time of year is difficult because I get ‘compassion fatigue’. I hope you are okay, I read about the Tsunami, just awful.

      2. Yes.. Indonesia has taken a battering this year in terms of natural disaster. All is good where I am, as luckily I’m in Jakarta area so not as much happens here. And cool! How long have you been a counsellor for?

      3. It was six years last November. Some days the job is rewarding others just exhausting, but the people there are the kindest, and most genuine people I ever worked with, I wish I could do it while I traveled. I definitely miss going on more trips.
