13 Pictures From Legok Kondang, Ciwidey – Day 1 & 2

Every year, the school I work for always held a school activity called action. The place could be different every year, however since I worked there the place was the same. We used a special camping ground called Legok Kondang Lodge in Ciwidey, Bandung. This year’s action was held from 26 – 28 May.

Last year, I didn’t do any special post here, only on my Turtle’s blog in a post called Ninja Turtle Ajashi. This year I got a lot good pictures because it has one activity I love the most, Hiking…plus the place is much better than last year.

This year, the kids had to set up their own tent. I had no documentary of them setting the tents because I was busy helping them as I am used to setting up a tent. It was a fun activity, especially for the kids who never set a tent.

As good Muslim, no matter where we are we still have to do our 5 prays. Especially when we are in the outdoor seeing the beautiful nature that Allah had created, what can be better than thanking Allah for the creation then by praying to Allah.

The next morning, I had a walk around the camping site. There is a buncis field, I am not sure what buncis is in English. It’s a kind of bean.

DSC04588We didn’t eat in the tents, the lodge provided us with a kind of place to eat, and I love the view there. There’s a pond and a set of VIP tents and a hill rise in the middle

We visited some schools there to do our action. To go there we had to go down from the lodge, and this is the view going down from the lodge.

Other teachers know that I love hiking, so they asked me and some other teachers to go and check the trek for the students, whether the trek was okay for the kids or not. Unlike last year, this year we wanted the kids to do some trekking. For me it was an easy trek…but most teachers and students have never had a hike before. (I will write about it on my second post ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

These following pictures were from the trek.

A cabbage field.

A tonggeret‘s skin on a tree. Toggeret is called Cicada in English. I also record their sound, maybe they sound different in your country.

There were endless coffee tree on the left and right side of the trek.

I love the colors of the beans and the ripe ones have sweet taste, not the bean but the liquid around the bean.

And we saw the REAL green house … not that glass house called greenhouse ๐Ÿ˜‰ …this one is really green with plants.

Then, 1.5 hours later (we walked very slowly considering and marking the trek that needed extra supervision) we could see our camping site again. The students were gathering there.

Before the night activity began, I had a coffee near my tent looking at this beautiful color on the sky. The sun was setting behind the cloud.

The second day was closed with fire and a farewell party for the teachers who will not join the school again next year.

The second post will be filled with beautiful scenery from the morning hike and the beautiful golden sunrise ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Yeah…compare to where I used to go, it’s very gentle. We were going to take kids and teachers who rarely hike, so easy path was necessary ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. Looks like a picturesque place, and a nice place to take the kids, especially for ones who don’t get to normally experience such things.

    1. It was an awesome place. Would love to spend days there exploring every hills in the surrounding.

      You know, I kinda like the idea of a honeymoon there ๐Ÿ˜‰ maybe one day

  2. Love that first shot of prayers in the tent. The sky is the same but all else is exotic from my point of view.

  3. The cicada in the US makes a similar noise!
    Beautiful what you wrote about stopping to pray and the photo that you included with it. I really like your campfire pictures too. I wanted to make a fire in the backyard tonight but it ended up raining.

    1. Thank you Susan ๐Ÿ™‚

      So that means all cicada sound the same ๐Ÿ™‚

      I rarely make campfire. This place has a very safe campfire site. It was a fun time

      1. I like that the cicada sound is that way…it’s another thing, be it a weird one, that connects us in a little way…just as we all look up to the see the same moon at night=)

Say something so I know you have read my post, THANK YOU for reading :)
