National Teachers Appreciation Day

Yesterday was National Teachers Appreciation Day, so a day off for all teachers and volunteers. We were all invited to a lovely lunch at one of the schools and then spent a lazy afternoon at the pool!
It's traditional for students to give their teachers a gift and every street vendor had beautifully wrapped gifts on offer. On closer inspection, the gifts contained useful items like toothpaste, washing powder and umbrellas - love it!
