    I and my family live in a rural location in South Sulawesi, Indonesia. The region was pretty unique, because have two different areas, both cold and hot area. We live in the hot and dry area . But, don't worry we have a fan and high-quality winds. In this region, we have friendly society and very welcoming to foreigners.

    In our rural, we have lots of cultures, traditional foods, and an amount of local languages we could used with different accents. We have a wonderful view, and easy access to enjoy the sea by a traditional canoe. We have also several social organizations that focus on charity and humanity.

    We live in a simplicity life. Simple house. Simple rooms. Simple equipment. Nothing luxury. But, no matter, we live in happiness.

    We have pets, its chicken and goats that separate from the main house. The point is don’t expect anything luxurious in my house, except something full of simplicity. But, don't worry we could easy access to the town to fulfill our needs.
