Well Good morning all!! Sorry for the delay in blogging. Getting back on home time is kind of difficult..and when you are under protest too…(see previous post) LOL
First day of work was interesting! We have 20 students – all very young…like I would say under 25 for all of them! Travis led the training yesterday so I didn’t have a whole lot of interaction – but did help out as much as possible. They are all super nice and I look forward to learning more about them.
They served us lunch yesterday. Rice…wow now THAT was a big surprise!! And veggies and beef (cubes of beef in a broth – really tasty) and last but DEFINETLY not least…Milk fish….a half of a milk fish….NO REALLY one half of a Milk Fish…I would say that the fisher man took the fish from the water, cut it evenly down the middle, they fried it….EYEBALL and all and they put it on my tray to eat. OMG I near died!! I tried to take a picture but my camera’s battery died on me! Maybe today if we get served the same thing! Now J would be proud--- I tried it..(no NOT the eyeball and half the skull– that stayed put!) but I tried the fish itself – which was done in vinegar and garlic and it was fine….fish you know….
Nothing really more exciting has happened in the past 24hrs. Unfortunately getting my sleep down pat is a bit difficult – so I’m messed up and feel like I’ve just slept, ate, and worked for the past 24…which funny enough is what I have done…I think tomorrow when the mall opens I’ll go to the mall..
Travis gave me a brochure about some day trips that the hotel offeres, they look really interesting – I think I will try to go on a couple – check out the link : www.greatsightsphils.com I haven’t checked it out yet so I’m not sure what is there. The brochure has some neat looking places. If there is one called Hidden valley tour..check out that one – I would LOVE to go on that one..but because I didn’t/am not taking anti-malaria drugs don’t think I should….boo hoo!!
The picture of the day is my Hotel – looking up…nothing major..however does it look to you like someone is jumping?
So think of me today....I’m sitting here with my cup of “coffeemated” coffee – eating my green apple – and go and get a nice Tim Horton's coffee...with nice pasteurized milk.....and anything BUT a green apple (note...I like apples...Green just happen to be my LEAST favorite! Oh well - I'm sure I have enough body fat to live on for a few weeks!!)
Thanks for all the comments! I love getting them! I know there are some ppl "lurking" go ahead, say HI - you dont have to have a blogger account...
BTW - if anyone sees mom and dad say HI!! (I think they are the only ppl I cannot talk to since they dont' have internet connection...well that makes me sad thinking of that...ok on to other things...)
Wes maybe you could "save" the web pages to the laptop and take them to them??
Love you all - have a great day!!
