The 9th of March

Sometimes one is just lucky to be in the right place at the right time.
On the 9th of March we had a 100% solar eclipse here in AP, and the best place to see it turned out to be our home town.

 I had already seen a 85-90% eclipse in Norway, and though that it wasn't that cool, but worth seeing. 
Turns out that a 100% is way cooler and very much worth seeing!

These pictures were taken by a friend, and were the best ones any of us took, but it still does not show it really well. It was really an amazing thing to see. God's creation is truly amazing, even though it is fallen... Makes me wonder what the perfection we will see in Heaven looks like.

The cool girls

Later in the afternoon, when we came home, our neighbors had killed this massive biawak. It came running into the guest house yard, and because the kids were playing there, it was immediately given a knock on the head.
(This is not a Komodo Dragon, these are not rare) 

I estimate it was about 2 meters from nose to tail tip and about 13-15 kilos.

Alia wasn't sure about this thing, but still found it interesting

And then they cooked it... people from the part of the country the man in the picture comes from are known for eating anything
