Indonesia 12 November: Angkah, Bali
From the sea to the beautiful rice paddy fields
We left behind the tropical island of Lembongang to start another beautiful day in Bali running through the luxurious green paddy fields of the Tabanan region.
The Principal of the school, Ms Ketut Ariani, also addressed us very kind words of support and welcome.
During the heart exercise the school children were very focused and all their sweetness came to the fore...
We presented the school with the Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run certificate and a Beautiful painting by Sri Chinmoy himself entitled Love the Children.
The head of the village, Mr. Bapak Suprabawa was present as well and was proud to hold the Peace Torch with our local organizer Akshada.
Smell of incense paved our way while passing by the flower offerings that can be seen everywhere in Bali.
Again we were embraced by Bali's tradition and enjoyed the mystical local dances, exemplary reproduced by the school girls...
Mr Bapak Suprabawa came also to the second school, here he is holding the torch with Mr. Nyoman Suriadnyara, the principal of Negeri II Angkah
After passing the torch we made a relay run all around the world, here the kids are passing by the Australia station and they had to run like kangaroos.
We ended our Peace Run day at Akshada's home in Angkah were we were presented with a sumptuous feast
Akshada is an excellent cook and an excellent host she had ready for us all kinds of traditional delicacies
