Shandon Wilkie, Grade 7, beaconhills
Being in a different country for the first time,
Everything is so different yet we live so close
Villages, people and the way they live,
It was unbelievable to see the way they survive.
Watching the waterfalls crashing down gracefully, so peaceful,
Almost like you have to keep quiet.
On the rice fields they get so hot and busy,
But in the street they are kind and happy.
As poor as they are, Indonesians are so rich in personality,
There is so much to see so little time.
I would never want to leave this place,
But nothing could replace the beautiful land of Australia.
