These were wooden xylophones accompanied by an Indonesian singer. Indonesian children also danced and sang.

Intricate designs were woven on gifts that were presented to the bride and groom's family.

Bananas and coconut were also part of the symbolic gifts that were presented.

Everything was decorated with traditional Javanese and Indonesian designs. Of course there was lots of food too. Fantastic! Posted by Picasa

    My uncle was Undersectary of Commerce under Roosevelt, and I stayed with them in Washington one summer while working. They took me to several Embassy affairs (parties) and the food was wonderful! And so much of it! (And the girls were wonderful, too!)

    What nice memories your post evoked!
