As I mentioned when I came to
Apart from playing sports, I took them to the beach and old
Now to put this lunch buffet in perspective, EVERY day for lunch and dinner the boys eat a full place of rice and a little bit of curry (myself included). That's it. While I was there, Seva Trust got a big donation of fish, so EVERY day was either fish curry or fried fish!
Funny when I called the owner that morning to confirm we were coming to the beach, I asked what he was making.
Of course my time there it was not ALL fun and games, almost everyday (and everyday during my 3rd week when they went back to school) their was some time spent studying. All the boys are varying ages and grades, so most time was spent helping them read English passages and solve math problems. Apart from their own homework, I spent a lot of time teaching them world geography and a little about science and general knowledge.
Its amazing how much these kids devour information. One day I went out to buy the boys some books about science, technology, some atlases, the human body, etc. When I got home from the market that day, you would think I brought these guys each a Sony Playstation! They just grabbed all the books and started reading and asking question after question. Amazing, such a thirst for knowledge.
