Our special activity last week has been one of my favorite experiences in Bali. We borrowed instruments from our neighbors and spent the early hours of the afternoon singing songs and making a lot of noise! It was amazing to see the students progress from listening shyly to gaining the courage to play the instruments themselves.
Two students in particular, Dicky and Yoga, really blew us all away. Towards the end of the activity, they sat down in front of some bongos and started playing like professionals! This activity took away the language barrier separating us. Through their engagement with the music, I was really able to see the characters of some of the shyer children.
