On Friday, a goodbye- banquet was held for the Philippine students.  The two schools each did some kind of performance.  Widya Mandala (the indonesian school I'm volunteering at) did some traditional dances and songs and stuff.  It was all pretty nice.  Apparently, there's a traditional form of song that's all vocal, so it's like an A-Capella band, but with like 24 members.  They sounded really good, I wish I recorded it.

The last act was some kind of dance, and they came out into the audience and dragged people to dance with them, and of course, I was the first one.  But then everyone else joined me and no one could see how bad I was.  So we took pictures and danced and exchanged emails, and then I started to ask the students what was going on that night.  Apparently the WM students were going to the hotel that the Philippine students were staying at to hang out for one last night.  So I hopped into a car with two of the student's I'd met, and we went off to the hotel to meet up with everyone.  Then I went out with Kimi to a near by bar to get some alcohol for the evening.  Apparently there's an english school nearby, because I saw some white people there!  (from England, Kimi said).  Also, beer is $2 here, FTW.  So we went back to the hotel and hung out with some of the students, and even one of the professors (who was young).  It was 4 am by the time we went to bed, and we woke up at 6 to get back home the next morning.  It was an awesome night.

So the next morning, I napped and worked on my presentations,  But had to cut it short because I was taken to a guest house up in the mountains with Rey and Eddie and the Opus Dei group.  It was extravagant.  and the mountains all around were beautiful.  It did get really cloudy though, and a sort of fog set in and prevented us from seeing the valley.  Unfortunately, I had to spend all my free time working on my presentations, but I did manage to get almost everything done for the one on monday, and just started for the one on Friday.  But I had to pass up a hike to some waterfalls, but I really needed to finish.

Ok, more pictures will be in the imgur album later, and more pictures here now!
