Ian catching up on his sleep, I can understand, but I am just plain lazy!
|Pro Fauna IS the animal protection group, but we are staying at P wec.|
The two are run by the same guy, but P wec is the money making 'eco-tourist'
holiday /volunteer destination. We did not 'save' any animals while we were there.
We thought of a few games like memory, Chinese whispers, guess the animal and it was suddenly snack time.
|Lunch was yummy!|
Let me take this moment to say that this is my second trip too Indonesia volunteering. I am always happy to help but making signs???!!! It felt so, pathetic. With Kalaweit, ((Kalaweit Blog entries here))I came to save the gibbons, and I really felt like I did some good work, yet here, there are no animals like was falsely lead to believe, nor is there any 'real' work for us to do.
Asti emerged from the kitchen with 9 plastic containers of coconut oil, mostly empty, some with greasy dregs inside. Nice. We were to make four signs from each container.
|Ian hard 'at work'.|
|Using blunt tools, we proceeded over the course of the afternoon.|
|We managed to cut out the rectangle shapes and |
even round them with scissors and file them with sandpaper.
|We painted them bamboo green too and left them to dry.|
Asti reminded us that we should think about what to do with our days off. Apparently, north of Malang were some lovely beaches, or of course, there was the great Mount Bromo to climb. Sunrises there were deemed to be the best in Asia (beating Fuji san?!) now, that has to be seen!
It is 8pm and the insane soundtrack of the local villagers keeps me awake. The speakers have been on full force now each night. I am told that they are 'celebrating' a circumcision - poor kid. They do it at 10 years old here, I dread to think how.
