17th of August 2009 - INDONESIAN INDEPENDENCE DAY
.... and a good reason to organise a village festival.
56 people – mostly village kids, some villagers, guests of Villa Manuk, my family and I were joining the games. Also many spectators enjoyed the competitions (all together more than 100 people) and we had a great time together.
One of the favourite games is called “Tari Butsal”. Two football teams – one without t-shirts and the other with lovely ladies wear. The football game has to stop immediately when music is played – then the players have to dance. As soon the music stops they play football again.
The present guests donated some felt pens and coloured pencils which were nice presents for the winners of the games - together with other small useful items for the kids from the project money.
It was a great event – with a lot of joy and laughter.
