Having fun preparing food!

It is summer break! There is a coming and going of girls who are visiting family and coming back again. Those who are staying at home are enjoying the break from school and help with the chores that need to happen and help with cooking food as well. Working together is always more fun than doing it alone and it leaves more time to do other fun things, like swimming, watching movies, or playing games. In Thailand eating together is very important and a lot of time is spent on it.

An American volunteer who is teaching English here is in turn also being taught by the staff and the girls. Cooking is one of the things they are teaching her as American and Thai food are two entirely different things. Even preparing the ingredients and using a knife are different but everyone gets the job done in their own way.

Finally it is time to tuck in and the food disappears in short order!
