Isaan 2

Location: Nong Plong Village, Thailand


Furniture is in tough shape.

With Oh, a friend and one of my "daughters", in her science class.

Praew (my host), Tik, and Jumpee (the latter two are the school's English teachers and the only ones who could speak English to any extent).

Tik's father-in-law who teaches social studies at the school, and her son Tutor (pronounced Tyooter), who is beloved by everyone!

Mr. Sawat, computer guru and teacher, getting ready to take students on a field trip.

End of school recitation of math tables before going home!

How beautiful is this sight?! Notice that the students do not wear shoes at school. Teachers do, students don't.

Enjoying their cooking together.

Thai version of banana cake that teacher friend Gan prepared with her students. Cooked in a banana leaf. Other cakes, like sweet potato, are prepared the same way.

Turquoise uniform - must be Friday! Morning assembly before going to classes. This was the morning I was introduced to all of the students and expected to make a speech! Notice the Buddha figure at the front.

Gan and her husband Ming at their home. She was so kind to invite me and send me back to Praew's home with some Thai fruit for me to try. I liked the fruit very much, but need a reminder of what they're called! "Old Balain!"
