    1. Actually, it's not easy for me to do everything as well. But my family is my first priority. We have to be a smart person to spent our time.

  2. Hi Endah, great that your community cares so much about the well-being of the river. I am not aware that we have events like that here in America. It always moves me, when people get together and try to make a difference!
    Warm regards,
    Christina
