First day in Tak!!!

Me and Cameron arrived in Tak on Sunday at 5am. We had travelled up to Tak from Bangkok on an overnight bus. We were picked up by one of the English teachers at Tak Pittayakom School called Pee Neng. She was very nice although it was quite surreal. She took us too her home and took us straight to a small bedroom, said night and shut the door as well as this metal gate thing that seem like we were being caged in, and so there I was. Standing in a bedroom, in some one's house in Thailand...its hard to explain the feeling but it was very wierd. Pee Neng has a husband and two young daughters who seemed very pleased to have someone to play badminton with.

After a few hours sleep we got up and we were met by Joe, one of the Project Vols from two years ago who was visiting Tak. It was really cool too meet him and ask lots of questions. It turned out that Pee Neng was not our host but another family 15 mins out of Tak, and so Pee Neng took us to the school were we were met buy our hosts daughter and her gang of friends. All were very excited to see us, they did a dance for us wich was really impressive. Also many of the boys in Thailand are quite feminine which is really funny! The concept of masculinity is kind of lost on Thai's! They were all really fun and welcoming. Our hosts Chat and Tay picked us up and took us too there house. They have a large home and are really nice.

That evening they took us out for sushi and too show us around, we ate by the river ping. Tak is very beautiful. It was the first time I had sushi and it was really good! However I didn't realise that that was only the starter and I was already full...they took us to Tak's night market were both me and Cameron were given a huge plate of rice with a big fried egg on top! We both managed to eat half of it but anymore and I would of been sick! Thai's LOVE food and can eat unholy amounts of it!! We were told next day would be our first day at school...
