... it was 6.30pm and getting dark. What a long day indeed!
I felt in need of some comfort food and so dined at Walkers Inn where I remembered they did an excellent Thai green curry with mashed potatoes.
Waiting for us at the office on Thursday morning was Barbara, the lady who had been distributing the gifts at the orphanage. She was from Bournemouth and was going to be teaching with us for a short while. We learned that she and her husband ...

It's run by a guy that is half German and half American. It offers lots of meat dishes cooked on the barbecue, but bizarrely I opt for a salad! Not my best move. The guy running it seems very switched on and has franchised the name, there are three others.
