We five people from Myanmar came Denmark for “Wonderful Days Festival” which was held from 6th to 10th July. The Wonderful Days Festival is such a great wonderful event as its name goes on. There are more than fifteen hundred participants with many international youths.
The volunteers are very active, responsible and talented. We got many new ideas and experiences which we can apply in our daily life. We had a date (a small chat) with Danish youth at tree house of Minglabar Myanmar. We talked about volunteerism and we learnt how Danish youths are eager to serve their community. And then we found that they can do the works without regarding of gender.
We taught them how to play Chinlone (Myanmar Traditional Ball – Cane Ball), even though we aren’t very good at playing that. We met many international youths and we made a good friendship and we shared our experiences, cultures, foods and so on. The concerts were very exciting and interesting. The Daily Show for every night like daily news, weather news were awesome. The Festival song “We are Young and Wonderful” is very meaningful. And the Late night Show “Myanmar Game” was a very exciting, enjoyable and scary event. And there were many activities zones like zip-lining, mud-bath, wildlife and so on.
After Wonderful Days Festival, we had a chance to join the Hvide Klit family Camp where the people are very kind and generous. We performed a Myanmar Traditional Dance “The Candle Light Dance”. And we could be a part of fundraising for Minglabar Myanmar by selling T-shirts, Mascots and helping them to wear Thanakha (Myanmar traditional make-up). And we made a small presentation about “Politic in Myanmar”. Then, we joined the youth meeting and we learnt many things like bully in community. We appreciate all the things that they had done in the camp.
We had a very good time with generous Danish in Denmark!
