Had class from 9AM-12PM, where I had Alternative and Complementary Medicine. The time went by surprisingly quick, since the lecture was more interesting than last class. Before I knew it, it was time for lunch at the classroom; then time to head off to the NGO. Like I mentioned earlier, the other class I am taking is to perform research with a local NGO. In our case, we had to drive an hour away to a nursing home; no one spoke English, so we had to bring a translator so that we could as questions. The lack of funding, given it is a government sponsered organization, is astounding. Most of the food comes from donations, which is needed since the government only allots 15,000 rupiah ($1.50) per person per day for all meals. We had a tour of the place, in which some rooms were nicer than others (due to uneven distribution of donated goods). It was sad to see the area where the most special-needs patients live--about 15 people live in the same long hall where only two staff take care of them. For over 50 elderly residents, there are only 12 staff for the whole home--only three of which are government paid civil servants. The whole situation was quite dismal, but an older woman who lived there was quite friendly--she showed us legong dance moves and was giving us high fives. That part was fun. We are still deciding what to do for our project proposal to try and help the NGO! We directly went to dinner (pizza!) after getting back to Ubud, and after walking home I spent the rest of the evening catching up on class work. Tomorrow we are heading to an isolated and rural fishing area called Amed, so this weekend beach trip should be a nice change of scenery!
