MOVED FOR TODAY

❤️I was Really Moved Today❤️
[爱心]今日感动[爱心]:
下午上完课陪学生回家,他们很热情的教我泰语,而且分享零食给我吃,在路上看到前几天的洪水对庄稼造成的影响,他们用泰文告诉我这是洪水。然后路过了一座废弃的学校,因为没有学生和老师,而且交通不太方便,所以就废弃了。把学生们一一送回家,他们也挥手跟我告别,非常可爱。回学校没有一会儿,可爱小女孩和她的妈妈就送来了零食和非常好吃的晚饭,非常贴心。然后借Note的没有钥匙的摩托去Bangnonghoy学校附近买了零食和水果,骑回来之后送给了Kit叔叔和Note一些。看到Note在很吃力地切肉,我就帮他把肉切好,首次下厨做了一道菜,味道还行,因为不太熟悉调料,只用了生抽和盐。然后陪他们去三公里远的Bangnonghoy学校附近去理发。理发店非常简陋,只有叫“剪”,没有“洗”和“吹”,但这次理发真的十分难忘,也非常满意,是时间最长的一次和最细心周到的一次理发,同时也是来泰国以来遇到的最受感动的一件事之一。当我理发结束,要付钱(30泰铢,折合人民币6块钱)时,理发师和Kit叔叔对我说理发是免费的,当时我很吃惊,半天听不懂他们在说啥,然后通过翻译软件得知“老师是免费的”。然后再一次向Note确认(这时他端过来理发店老板娘送我的水让我喝),他在翻译软件上打出泰文告诉我“旅途遥远,还免费教学生,所以免费”……[月亮]感恩[爱心]

After class in the afternoon, I took students home with Uncle Kit. They taught me Thai in a warm way, and shared snacks with me, which was eally Good.

1

On the road, I saw the impact of the floods in the past few days on the crops. They told me in Thai that this was a flood. I was so sorry to hear that.

2

Then I went by an abandoned school. Because there were no students and teachers, and the traffic was inconvenient, it was abandoned…

3

After Sending the students home one by one, they also waved goodbye to me, which are very cute.

4

After returning to school for a while, I met the the cute little girl and her mother who send us food everyday, they sent snacks and very delicious dinner for me and River. They are very kind and considerate. And In next morning we also sent them some snacks:)

5

After dinner, I borrowed the No-key motorcycle from Note(grade 9 student, Uncle Kit’s son) to go to the shop near Bannonghoy School to buy snacks and fruit. After riding back, I gave some to Uncle Kit and Note.

6

Seeing that Note was cutting the meat very hard, I helped him cut the meat. And I cooked it for the first time. Fortunately, it tasted not bad, because I was not familiar with the seasoning, I only used soy sauce and salt.

7

Then I went with them to  cut hair in a barber shop near the Bannonghoy school. The barber shop is very simple, only has “cut”, no “wash” and “blow”, but this time the haircut is really unforgettable and very satisfied for me. It is the longest time and the most careful and thoughtful haircut. One of the most touched/ moved things I have encountered since I ‘ve come Thailand. When I finished my haircut and I wanted to pay (30 baht, equivalent to 6 yuan), the barber and Uncle Kit told me that the haircut was for free. I was surprised at the time. I couldn’t understand what they were saying. And then through the translation, the software showed that “teacher is for free.” Then I confirmed it to Note again (when he held a cup of water provided by the barber’s wife for me to drink), he wrote Thai on the translation software and told me that “Your country is far away from here, and you teach students for free, so it’s free”…[love]

I am really satisfied with my hairstyle. So grateful and Moved (Almost cried)

💞Thanks for all kind people, thanks for ICCVTT.💕
