I can’t believe this was my last week, and I only have one more day. How am I going to survive without my kids? Whether we want them to or not, there are always kids that leave a mark in our hearts and I will miss them so much! Besides the kids, there are always the Co-Directors that are amazing and do everything to make us feel at home. I loved this experience and definitely will come back and advise everyone to come here too.
So I’ll talk a little bit more about my week and less about my feelings (haha). This week was simple, I assisted SD 2 and Junior class. All the kids wanted to learn and that spirit gave us motivation to teach.
On the weekend I went to Bukit Lawang (Lawang Hill). Bukit Lawang is a small village with a river called Bahorok, in North Sumatera. We used simple public transportation to get us there for 2-3 hours more less. It has an amazing view. We did a simple rafting trip (with 3 tubes bound together to be a small raft). Bukit Lawang is also known for the animal sanctuary of Sumatran Orang Utan (the big Ape). Since we just had one day, we only did the rafting. I definitely recommend visiting this place. A good way to spend the weekend, with a short trip!
