Santi Triprakoso Wartono, wife of Indonesian Ambassador to Mexico Cheppy Triprakoso Wartono, hosted a lavish sit-down farewell luncheon for departing colleague Jennifer Treptow, wife of U.S. Embassy Department of Justice Attaché Walter Treptow, at the embassy’s offices on Friday, July 8.

The Treptows, who has been in Mexico for three years, are being transferred back to their native Arizona later this week.

The luncheon, which was attended by close friends of Triprakoso Wartono and Treptow, included a succulent meal of salad and fried shrimp chips, sweet-and-sour fish soup and nasi uduk (meat slow-cooked in a paste of coconut milk, cloves, cassia bark and lemongrass) with steamed rice served on a banana leaf.

For dessert, there was fresh coconut water and turmeric fruit broth (believed to have heart-healthy and anti-inflammatory properties, besides being delicious).
