I am living in a village of about 6,000 with a host dad (who's the mayor of the district), host mom, and 17-year-old host sister.
|My room when I first arrived, it's a lot messier now.|
|Don Gedi, the re-enactment of an epic battle between the kings of Burma and Thailand that took place on elephants. The king of Thailand won.|
|Chinese New Year in Suphan Buri's Chinatown.|
|Riding past BEAUTIFUL rice paddies every day.|
|The oppressive heat of fog in Thailand. I did not love riding my bike the morning this happened.|
|The 100 year old market in Bang Pla Ma.|
|Going to temple on Sunday in Wat Pho Takuan.|
In short, has everything been easy? No. Are the people wonderful and am I so glad that I decided to do Peace Corps again? ABSOLUTELY!
