Meet Sampela’s family

Today is the first day of our homestay in Sampela, Wakatobi. After arriving in this village, Andar met us and took us to his home where all the families waited, curious to meet all of the students–their new children for the next 12 days.

Sampela is a stilt village located off the coast of Kaledupa island, and is a community of Bajau people, formerly sea-based nomads.

Here are few pictures from us. More to come!

Salam dari Sampela.
