Our village had a big party last night as a twenty year old man is entering the temple as a monk this morning. His head is shaved, and he is ready to commit to the lifestyle of a monk. Wandering the village blessing people early in the morn in exchange for food. Fasting after Eleven and many religious duties.
It was a right party with food, drink, dancing, and karaoke that went on non-stop!
We also met the Mayor of our village, a lovely man who was elected a few months ago of three candidates. From all the people I spoke with, he definitely seemed to be the unanimous choice. He was keen to get English classes for adults in the village started so I am soooo excited to get that into action!
