Just a quickie.
Managed to take my mobile phone for a dip in the pool of our new accomodation. It melted like the wicked witch of the east. In the process of getting a new one!
We've been super busy with the course, and we've even taught our first couple lessons! It really wasn't as scary as we thought it might be, (its been great fun actually!), but the lesson planning is SUCH a drag. And having to come up with new games/fun activities can really do your head in, but hopefully by the time we are teaching full time we will have super lesson planning skills.
As I said, we are really busy, and we STILL haven't been to the beach yet for a swim. We went to Phuket Town last week Saturday, but apart from getting lost and walking about town, all we did was eat, do a little shopping and sit in an internet cafe. We will be back there this Saturday at 8 am for a procession that's part of the annual Vegetarian Festival. It's a chinese buddhist festival but they seem to worship the Hindu gods also... Pictures this weekend.
Missing you all, please get in touch!
