First we stop at the football field, and I thought the camping will going like a camping for junior high school or elementary school because the thing on my mind is because we stop in football field with the smooth grass and really close by the main road, shop, juice shop etc, and we`ll just be cooking, chatting, and blah..blah..blah.. but it was different. We had to walk for more than 15 km before we can set up our tent and that was tiring, but fun, a lot of things are happening. On the way to get to another spot we can see really nice views, birds, villages and really nice people, and they are so welcoming with sweet smiles. On the way we did struggle a little, we saw one man carry a lot of firewood and he seemed to enjoy it when we really struggled to get up the hills! We also see a group of ladies just get back from the tea field and they are really cute and we have chat for a bit, they laugh at us as well because we are young and fresh but get tired but the old ladies carry a lot of, they are very strong! I am really proud of them, they have a hard life but they seem happy and enjoying their lives, I can see that from their happy faces.

In this event they have some category of competition like time keeping, planting trees, knowledge, and many more. I am happy to be in this event because we met with so many difference people from different professions, organizations, places. Maybe there is around 300 people in this competition that we can share about our experience of nature or anything. We might not have won anything but we are still having fun!

The thing I learn from this event is communication is important for sharing about nature and environment, to keep it ever lasting, so all our generations can still see it.
