The first week of the new school term doesn't start till Monday the 3rd so last week we worked on the gardens at Anjali and our theme for general studies was celebrations.
The only bad thing about the gardening was my feet getting badly bitten by the voracious local ants. Obviously, barang skin is much more delicious than the locals' as the children weren't bothered at all by them, and my super-strong insect repellant didn't deter them either. I was woken in the middle of the night with my feet feeling like they were on fire, and by the next morning had several large red bumps and many blisters. They're
recovering ... slowly.
Apart from that the kids drew their impressions of Christmas and the Christmas party, and we played a lot of games -- and I mean A LOT of games. The kids have so much energy that it's exhausting just watching them sometimes.
