Visit to an Orphanage in Manado, Indonesia

When I travel, I sometimes enjoy doing something called Couchsurfing. The long and short of it, for those who haven’t heard of the website www.couchsurfing.org, it’s “A volunteer-based worldwide network connecting travelers with members of local communities, who offer free accommodation and/or advice”.

Long story short, I was couchsurfing in Manado, Indonesia. On Sundays, my host family goes around to two local orphanages to visit the children and make contributions. I decided to tag along with them. The kids were very curious to see this foreigner (me) along side my host family. I asked if Icould take a group photo and the kids were ecstatic.

I had to leave on a ferry for Papua the following day but luckily my host volunteered to get the photos printed and deliver them for me (well for the kids really). Much thanks to Winda (my host) for all the help.
