Maldives 7 November: Maafushi island
Maafushi island - a short visit
...after which we arrived at Maafushi, one of the first inhabited islands to welcome tourists few years ago.
Leaving our bags at accommodation we headed straight to Maafushi school. We do like the school values.
The students seemed to like our skits - we do these to show in a playful way what is peaceful and harmonious and what is not.
Where can you find peace? It only takes a moment to feel your heart and become more peaceful and understanding.
Ms. Muzu was incredibly helpful in organising our very last minute presentation. Children will now have 4 days of holidays.
It was an honour for us to visit your school and the Certificate of appreciation is our way of thanking you for kindly welcoming us. We also presented a "World Harmony" painting by the founder of the Run, Sri Chinmoy. We hope it will remind you of our visit and of the value of peace and the need to work on achieving more peace every day, in our own lives and in our community.
Students formed a big circle to pass the flaming torch representing the flame of love and friendship and yearning in our own hearts.
We then ran to the Island Council building where council president Mr. Usman Rasheed kindly received the torch on behalf of Maafushi Island.
It was an interesting experience to be sitting on this tiny strip of land with water all around you.
