We are a small group this year. Everyone is laid back and very willing to try new things
On Saturday evening, Aj. Maew cooked fried rice and egg soup for dinner. After dinner the students went to the Walking Street market to buy souvenirs. Students enjoyed their buys. It was rather crowded and a lot to take in so the students were a little overwhelmed about this experience but had a lot of fun.I did not accompany the students to today’s events as I had to prepare for my 3 day Simulation Conference that I am presenting this Weds, Thurs, & Friday. Greg took charge today and did well. Today, Sunday, we started the day out with worship. Greg talked about the simple truth of Jesus Christ. Following his message we shared our testimonies, sang some choruses and closed in prayer. It was a very special time. We had three Thai students join us for worship. They are Christians and shared their testimony with us. They also came prepared with worship songs, in English.
Following our worship time we met as a class to go over Delegation & Management issues as well as to address our cultural experiences
After lunch we walked to the nearby Cultural Center where we received a guided tour on the history of Chiang Mai. It was very interesting and we learned a lot. Following our tour we went shopping for Thai attire. The students wanted to buy a Thai outfit for our Kohn Toke Dinner on Tuesday night. Everyone seemed pretty pleased with their purchases including the bartered prices.
The students had pizza tonight for dinner and then their Thai buddies escorted them to the Street Market for some more souvenir shopping. Pi Jip and her family took my family to dinner. Brianne had the evening free so we went to her hotel and picked her up earlier in the afternoon so she could join us for dinner tonight. We ate at a Chinese restaurant close to one of the hospitals. JigSaw was on call tonight so we had to eat close by. The food was wonderful. We had new food tonight including shark fin. Jeremy has tried more new food in the past 3 days than he has during his entire life
Following dinner we returned back to our apartment. Tomorrow is our first day in the hospital so we have some preparation to do. Morning ceremony is early in the morning so we are getting ready to retire early tonight. Sweet dreams and I will try and post tomorrow evening. Good night.
