12th of July.

I'm trying to catch up on blogging as I've not been able to get on the internet for long enough wherever I am. Funnily enough, the only hotel I've been able to get the internet working properly in the little hotel in Rangoon, Burma! 

On the 12th of July I went with Mum and Geoff to CDC where mum was catching teacher Myo Nyunt up with training she had done with the other teachers. She had been training the CDC teachers in Emotional literacy and I listened in, it was really interesting and I think it will be beneficial to the teachers and children at CDC. 

Teacher Myo Nyunt works at CDC school and lives in one of the boys' boarding houses. He is studying Public Communication with Open University Australia (OUA), he does this online. He also attends university in Burma, he goes back every now and then to attend but otherwise studies from Mae Sot, Thailand. 

This is mum with teacher Thein Naing. Geoff created a program for Scottish schools that tracks students' grades and was training the teachers and Thein Naing in how to use this to track their students' grades. 

This is Pee Say Hei. She is the headteacher of CDC primary school. She and Thein Naing came to Campie school in Scotland as part of the Global Schools Partnership between Campie school and CDC school. 

This is the little boy of a family I was very close to when I lived in Mae Sot. He's older now! Walking and talking. In these pictures he is sweeping the grounds of the school. Very funny!

After we went to CDC, we visited Hle Bee school so mum could say goodbye. We brought Thazin, the headteacher, a bag of chickens! This was a really nice gift for them and Thazin later told me that the her family and her 2 brothers' families each had a chicken for dinner. 

I look quite happy in this photo, but I'm screaming inside because the chickens still had their heads and feet! We explained to Thazin and her family that this isn't normal for us and that we were afraid, they thought that was very funny. 

We sang songs with the children at Hle Bee and they asked some questions about mum's school. They asked how many toilets they had in the school, because there are only 3 for around 200 students at Hle Bee. 

They also asked for us to sing our national anthem. We explained that we would sing Flower of Scotland. I think they enjoyed it. 

After school, one of the students came over to me and showed me a fetal mouse that he had been keeping as a pet (!!!). It was really weird and looked like it was dying. Ew. 

That night we had a quiet dinner and came back to the hotel early because mum and Geoff needed to pack as they were leaving in the morning.

    exchange the actual battery oneself, as opposed to finding a storage area to get
    it done. Remove other nearby wireless devices, such as a cordless
    or cellular telephone and make sure the mouse is at least eight inches away
    from a wireless keyboard. Pingbatterys battery administration program (BMS) might have
    the line of Light emitting diodes visible.
