Checking Out : Kampoeng Wisata Cinangneng, Bogor!

20 November 2012One Comment

 

Regardless of where we live, every country has its pros and cons.

And to me, one of the ‘good’ things about living in Indonesia is : We have greater access to real experiences of culture and nature! 

Not too long ago, Anya and her school friends went on an excursion to ‘Kampoeng Wisata Cinangneng’ in Bogor.

A one-day trip, away from modern and busy city life.

(Which all city children and adults need once in a while, actually)

The trip gave them all a great experience and exposure to nature and the great outdoors (which I truly appreciate!)

Just to give you an idea, these were some of the things they did: 

> Learn to play Angklung & sing a Sundanese song

> Learn to plant rice

> Cross a river

> Wash water buffaloes

> Learn to play Gamelan (a traditional musical instrument)

> Learn to make a traditional drink called ‘jamu’

> Learn to make a puppet from casava leaves

> Paint a farmer’s hat

I didn’t go as it’s a trip meant for just the students.

(Photos were taken by a friend)

BUT, I do hope one of these days we could there on our own though.

(Because I secretly want to know what washing water buffaloes is like! Haha)

It’ll be fun!
