Filed under: Jalan2 — arji @ 11:20 pm

hmmm….because of so many things to do, i have to pending the story about KJ 1st workcamp…i am so sorry…^^

so, now i am going tell about the story direclty to the 1st day of the workcamp.

the hard thing is to match the picture and documentation with the date, because even we have the date in every picture or video, the record of all of the pictures&video was mix between this camera and that camera,etc. but,its the same actually..some picture maybe look a like each other, for example sunset picutres. but, eventhough they look a like,trust me its taken on different day…if you are look it carefully you can see the different..LOL

the thing is,the story will tell from first person view…ok?!

here it is…

10th July 2009

first day of the workcamp we almost woke up at 7.30 am and then breakfast together at 8 am. for the first time since we arrived in semarang we had something else to eat than rice for the breakfast, which are cake, friedbanana, bread with chocolate and banana inside and many other things i dont really know. after that we went to do activities with mothers! we had tea there and the mothers sung a really nice song. then we went all together in the city and clean the street during half an hour. we finished at 10.30 am and had “pictures time” with the mothers. some of us had games with the children there and dance our banana song.

after 10.30 am, we had free time untul the lunch at 1.30 pm. we decided to discover the island and went on the beach which is on the right of the harbour. we didn’t find a real beach with white sand but we had a swim there and ate coconut from the tree. after lunch, arji and i went to the badminton place watch local man play, and after stayed near the port to talk and see the sea.

at 3.30 pm, we went with arji into the city to see how they manage garbage here! it seems that everyone has benn surprise about the fact that they build houses on trashes!LOL… we had a discuss and kind of argue with the local people, but what is the best solution?it seems that after the conversation we had this evening, everyone is confused and don’n really know how we can help them in only 2 weeks which ic quite short time. after this short visit3.30 until 4.30 pm, we came back and tried new food they made for us in the homestay (fried coconuts with brown sugar) and it seems that everyone like it!

to summarize this first day, i think that everyone enjoyed it, had fun with the mothers and the children!

everyday in Indonesia is surprising and superb! hopefully it will last!
