Jack decided to go with Sue to work again today, so Sophie and I accompanied them to the local noodle shop for breakfast before putting them on the bus to work.
Here's Sophie - awake and ready at any time of day!
Some neighborhood scenes: (LEFT) Here's a guy getting a close haircut from a barber without a barber shop. This barber is there most weekdays and seems to do a pretty good business. A quick and cheap way to get a haircut (less than $1 US!). (RIGHT) We sat in a noodle shop this morning before the bus came to get Sue and Jack for work. It's convenient because the bus stops right out front.
The bus came, but it turned right from the center lane and clipped a taxi. After the damage was sorted out, the bus finally picked up Sue and Jack.
Turning right from the center lane (or left from the right lane) seems to be a fairly normal occurrence, where the driver's wishes are communicated to the world through insistent horn blasts. The more likely a crash, the more insistent the horn blasts become! After the crash occurs, the horn blasts of the two tangled cars stop, but then everyone else starts honking their horns because now they have to wait for the mess to get cleared up! How many crashes have we seen? Too many to count!
Here's Jack, in the classroom today with some of Sue's students. I'm not sure how many marriage proposals he received today :).
The students wrote letters to American students in class, and now they have them ready to mail! They're holding up the letters that are ready to send!
We hope to collect all our students' letters and get them in the mail early next week, and back in the U.S. kids' hands soon!
