Coca Cola in a Bag

We drove home in a different direction to see a little more of the countryside. We turned down a street and this is what was ahead of us. An old Cathedral. It was beautiful. I'm not sure how old it is, but I'm sure it is over 100 years old.
It is the St Nicholas Cathedral in Magalang.

Because it was so hot in church, Wade decided to stop and get a cold coke on our way home.
This is the little bakery he went into while I took pictures of the cathedral.
He had been talking to the clerks for a while and finally called me over. He had bought a coke, but it was in a bottle. The girls in the shop wouldn't let him buy the bottle and told him that he could could drink it there or they could put it into a bag to take with him. I wish I had taken a picture of them pouring the bottle of Coca Cola into a plastic bag. The clerks were getting a kick out of Wade's reaction. He was just being him. It was pretty funny! He said that in all of the traveling around the world he has done in his life, he has never has a coke in a bag!
