A Wooden Bridge In My Instagram

This picture was taken some weeks ago. Actually it was taken last year or the year before. I like this instagram post due to the picture itself and to the story behind it.I used to take a ride with my husband and kids with motorbike. We loved to explore our neighbouring villages. One of them is Seprahu Village where my husband spent some of his time when he was younger there to plant and crop melon. The moment I took the photo was when the village had just relieved from a pain called landslide and flood.

I understand and speak two languages, both of them are my mother tongue. They are Javanese and Indonesian. I learnt Javanese first then Indonesian. English? It's an alien in my language world, but, I fell in love with it ever since I knew it although I keep making mistakes in using it.
English Is Not My Mother Tongue, So Making Mistakes Is Understandable Please, laugh at me. I write this article with a strong feeling that I may be making mistakes. English was not my major at college. I don't understand about preposition, grammar and many more things. All I know is I feel that what I write sounds English. Haha... Who can guarantee that anyway? No one. And if I made mistakes than it will be alright. Why?
