It’s been a long day.
It’s 9.30pm here in our Village, I feel weird, the only word that comes to mind about how I am feeling and the atmosphere in Bali is eerie.
My husband and family members in our Village compound are going about their every day lives with an acceptance.
That’s just what they do… they accept what will be, without what seems like too much worry at all?
Today I have been feeling every emotion, I would say a feeling of anxiety is at the top of my list.
I feel empathy and sadness for the locals from Karangasem, who have been evacuated from their homes, away from their temples and animals and who are now refugees in their own Country.
It seems the number of people are in the vicinity of 10,000 and increasing by the hour.
Volunteers have banded together co-ordinating the delivery of essential supplies and collecting donations.
More information can be found on Kopernick’s website who have set up a fund, MOUNT AGUNG EMERGENCY RESPONSE.
It’s interesting to be an Aussie chick married to a Balinese man right at the moment.
I am in mini breakdown mode, planning, stocking the cupboards, buying masks and everything else I have been reading about that is necessary when facing an impending Volcanic Eruption.
Made is just going along his merry way without a care in the world.
Tonight we decided to take a ride to the rice fields where the local farmer told us this morning where we would see Mount Agung in all his glory if he erupted.
All was quiet, eerie, not even a star in the sky.
Until my next update,
Take care and
