Tomorrow will be my last day in school and the time has gone very quickly. It would be great to know what happens to all these young people who are grabbing at any chances they have to get a better life. Lung the teacher is studying to become a qualified teacher but it's so hard to work and study at the same time and the heat is so draining. The last few days have seen more of the young volunteers depart, most are off to Laos, Thailand or Burma they really have no idea how privileged they are and most don't notice much. I've met one or two exceptions really astute young people who understand the challenges and are able to understand what they see. Yesterday I went into town after school and just people watched for a few hours from a pavement cafe. I came back about 6 after eating English muffins and , smoked salmon and poached eggs plus a pineapple juice and two beers all for 5 dollars. That was in a more expensive cafe! The doctors from Global Medics came back to grace house today to teach the staff some meditation techniques to use with the kids. They had noticed high levels of anxiety amongst both adults and children last week. They said adults still have many effects from the war years and children suffer all sorts of abuse. We are all using a simple one minute meditation at the start of lessons to focus and calm - something that could be used everywhere to good effect I think . One of the areas being developed at Grace House is vocational education led by Alan who is Brigit's husband he has trained four lads as electricians to western standard and is extending the apprenticeships and upgrading the electrics in the villages the project serves. His plan is to source reject chips for solar panels and start a scheme to build them here at low prices for the local community. There are people like him in many many NGOs here doing such good stuff most of which will be sustainable as the Cambodians take over eventually. Siem Reap is an NGO frontier there are so many projects doing similar things all needed this country is full of corruption and waste. Tonight was tapas - everything for a dollar so I ate well and had two g&ts for 5 dollars. Last day tomorrow still one or two things I need to do. Friday is party day and everyone has said you midst come to the party before you leave for the airport - must go to the post office to see if the package Sarah sent is in Cambodia.
