Today, November 23rd, many countries are celebrating Thanksgiving. This is a day where people give thanks for the blessings of Harvest and it is the day where families and loved ones gathered and enjoy a special feast. In Indonesia, we don’t have this celebration. However, this doesn’t mean that the island is not celebrating. We have mentioned in our previous newsletter that there are various dinner, brunches and takeaways you can choose from. We got the list here.
Another thing to give thanks to is the fact that Mount Agung has a small eruption last Tuesday but all is good and safe. This is considered at phreatic eruptions, which is a steam-driven explosion because the water beneath is heated as it comes in contact with magma. However, the status of Mount Agung remains at Level 3 with the danger zone is at 9km radius. The wind is still blowing towards East – Southeast, so there are no disturbances to the International Airport Ngurah Rai’s activity. So, Bali is still safe for tourism despite the last eruption of Mount Agung.
Last but not least, yesterday we join the Rotary Club of Bali Seminyak luncheon, and they announced lots of cool projects ahead. The lunch that is hosted at The Trans Resort Bali gathered the Rotary members dedicated to support 6 causes, which are: promote peace, fight disease, provide clean water, sanitation, and hygiene, save mothers and children, support education and grow economies. This year, they announced that they already got the grant from The Australian Consulate to translate and print 2,000 copies of children book entitled Oceans Champions that will be distributed to schools all over Indonesia. They also announced their plan to buy a bus for disable people of Mount Agung refugees. We salute these Rotary members for their commitment in making a difference!
