Lampung day 1: Mutun Beach and Tangkil Island

Last June, I had a great opportunity to help hosting SPH summer school’s instructors from the US. There were 9 instructors from 4 different universities: Corban Unversity, Covenant College, Calvin College, and Dordt College. They stayed and taught in Indonesia for a month. We also had an amazing trip to Lampung to visit some Lentera Schools there. Here are some pictures and stories from our trip to Lampung.

We were divided into 2 groups that were going to 2 different Lentera Schools in Lampung, one in Jati Agung and the other one in Sekampung. Both schools are under Pelita Harapan Foundation. We went there for 4 days to teach English and also give some donations to the schools.

June 8, 2013. Taking off from Jakarta, arriving in Lampung. It took only 20 minutes flying from Jakarta to Lampung. haha.

Our first destination after landing in Lampung was the Mutun Beach, around one hour away from the airport. The view was really great even though there were some parts of the beach that were not clean.
