Waking up to the view of Mount Agung was so amazing. We got to look at the view for about half an hour until the beautiful mountain was covered with clouds and was sadly gone. After having our delicious breakfast we went on a 6.7 mile walk all the way up to a temple!!! It was ever exhausting but all of the views looking down on all of the rice paddies made all the pain and tiredness in our legs go away.
Next we met up with the second group of students and really bonded while making music with the gamelan, making different types of offerings, and dancing. It is amazing how easy it is to connect with the students, we feel like we have known them forever but it has only been 2 days. Although our afternoon with them came to an end we got to see a ceremony for a new restaurant and had a delicious dinner.
