Volunthai’s Travel Diary

Monday, 11 Aug 2008

Location: Khowang, Yasothon, Thailand

MapGreat Experience!!
I volunteered in Khowang, Thailand for 6 weeks. The teaching part could be challenging --- only because of the communication barrior. But the students are absolutely wonderful and very respectful. They have a great desire to learn English (especially songs!) and are extremely kind.
As wonderful as the teaching aspect was, the people of Khowang were the most amazing I have ever had an opportunity to be around. My host sister (as I called her) was extremely gracious and always looked out for my needs. I never went hungry! It took me a few weeks to get used to Thai food (as it's not like the restaraunts here in the U.S.) but I quickly found many dishes I crave to this day. And HELLO, how delicious is the fruit of Thailand?
If you are considering volunteering, this program is wonderful and they will take care of you every step of the way. Check out my pics, too!
