Volunthai’s Travel Diary

Friday, 04 Jul 2008

Location: Prangku, Si Sa Ket, Thailand

MapI have been in Prangku School (2000 students) for about 7 weeks now. While I enjoy teaching in the classroom, my favorite part of the day is 8 o'clock PM. After being stuffed with random (delicious) foods, I walk over to the small town's coffeeshop and tutor a student for her speech competition. Her mother gives me free coffee (I tried paying, but after so many times you give up!). She later told my host that she is so proud to have "teacher Daniel" to tutor her daughter, and that no one has ever shown such interest in her children's studies. What a great feeling to know you're really helping and appreciated! Daniel
PS. When in doubt, smile and wai!
