Where I stayed
School starts soon and we will once again be in full swing. At least I hope so. Although the 49 Juice Bar is a beautiful location, right across from the river and park we do not get many tourists and only in the evenings do we get the locals
A little tour of the 49 Juice Bar. Although they have only been open for a few months there have been many changes. We now have a computer where people can get on the Internet, listen to music, watch a movie or take some of the English lessons we have on CD. Between the "rushes" we do tutoring. We have set up a small library. Maybe a little bit unique some romance novels and children books. But they love them. Although we offer tutoring at the Bar we have one teacher who goes to peoples homes. Our youngest student is 6 and our oldest is about 50.
I caught Lisa cooking dinner and told her I was going to put her on the Internet. She was so excited. She gave me a whole cooking lesson. It is about 8 minutes long so if you do not have the time to watch I understand. Last year Lisa only new a few words of English and worked in one of the tourist shops. Now she is our cook and as you see loves to talk
With school in the kids just pile into the place. Most with there membership cards wanting to make sure they get credit for each drink they buy. It is great. As a member the more drinks they by the more chances they get to get some prizes. They get bigger drinks, T-shirts and the most popular is the American state quarters I brought. We now have over 500 members. Mostly kids but some parents and locals also. The primary school is just a few doors down and we get about 2000 kids pass the Juice bar each day.
