First day for new volunteers

January 12, 2010

Yesterday was the first day of school for the new volunteers. The women have all bought Lao skirts, called a “sin”, for teaching in the Monk schools. We all have to wear collared shirts with sleeves as well, at least for teaching in the Monk school. Here is a photo of Vanessa, Amy, Ron, Queenie and Katie in front of the Cold River Guest House. In addition to the teaching slots we had scheduled for the day, we toured most of the places where we will be teaching and working: Wat Sop, Big Brother Mouse, MyLibrary, the Monk School and the Mano English Centre.
