At 5.30 early in the morning, I had to be on the bus that took me to Gunung Mas. Gunung Mas is a tea plantation owned by the government that situated at Puncak, Bogor, West Java. The plantation has been developed as a tourism spot. People go there for tea walk or just picnic.
After the bus stopped at several pick up point, the bus took the toll road to Puncak. The bus arrived at 7.30. The parents from PTA welcomed me and my friends and had provided us with breakfast. The air was fresh and the scenery was beautiful that morning.
After having breakfast, we warmed up a little. Then, we started to walk through the tea plantation. First, the track was not too hard, it was not steep. But... there were at least two steep area.
During the walk, we could enjoy the scenery. It was very beautiful. We met some tea leaf pickers. I didn't know how many meters we had to walk. In order to forget the distance I made myself busy taking pictures.
When we reached the finish line, we had to design a construction for egg drop base. The egg should touch the ceramic tile on the ground safe and sound. We only could use the material provided, i.e. a box, string, tape, sticks, and newspaper. Only 3 out of 20 groups could make it. My group was one of them. We did it, we did it, hore...
After having lunch, we danced and played games. There was a game called Tarzan, Jane, and Tiger (just like stone, scissors, paper). Only, we had to play it in groups. The whole group had to act the same thing, either Tarzan, Jane, or Tiger. Tiger beat Jane, Jane beat Tarzan, and Tarzan beat Tiger.
We went home at 16.00 and I arrived home at 19.00 tired but happy because it was my first time to do tea walk.
