Rachael is one of volunteer teacher in Sahabat Anak Prumpung, well as our best friend.
Last Friday (May 27, 2011) was her farewell night with her students and us, as she's going back to Scotland for studying purpose. Sure it was a sad night, saying goodbye to her. But, instead of saying goodbye, a sweet promise to meet again someday would be a better choice.
---- Thanks Rachael for everything you've been doing for the children. We're more than happy to having you in our study house. There would be time to meet in the future. So, Best luck for you!
We deliver this video, just to remind you, that you've got not only friends, but family, in Indonesia, and the door will be always opened for a family member, named Rachael Fulton :).
Palangkaraya is special for me. Containing a very beautiful warm nature with nice local people.
Caught a morning flight, arrived in Palangkaraya, started the journey to Bukit Doa Karmel Tangkiling, then Taman Alam. Visiting Tahai Lake in Tangkiling was also exciting. The water's color is red, because of the peat land, that's so unique anyway. In the afternoon we went down the Rungan River to see the habitat of Orang Utan.
Many places to visit and to explore.
The morning market, the city park, BOS (orang utan conservation), trace the Kahayan River, visit Kumkum - a small zoo in Pahandut Seberang and take pictures in Palangkaraya statue.
So many places, so little time :P.
But one moment I can't forget was the barbeque night in Babugus (east part of Palangkaraya) with our local friend and his family, staying in their hut in the edge of the forest, playing a silly games and sharing stories. The next morning, we swam in Mangkutup River, not far from the hut. It is a natural river with the red water, cool... super cool!
