Some More Things

Some more things that happened during the course of my hiatus:

  • Saturday was a Thai holiday. I was told beforehand that on Saturday I was suppose to go to the temple and give the monks treats that resemble bird seed bars. I was planning on partaking in this cultural experience until I realized that it took place at 4:30 in the morning on Saturday. How did I find out that it took place at 4:30 in the morning? Well, because the entire town set of fireworks starting at 4:30 AM, which was then followed by the daily monks chanting over the loud speakers at 5 AM. Good times, good times. I never thought I could hate holiday festivities so passionately.
  • Today, my couterpart had me proofread a script she wrote for the high school students. My favorite part: the multiple references to the “wicked bastards.”
  • Today my other counterpart took me to the market and paid for all my groceries. God love her.
  • I am in the midst of a full on coconut obsession. Ice cold coconut juice on a sweltering hot day is so so refreshing.
