Nous avons présenté Kutchum à lui et Nous trois avec Pi Nat, Pi Anne et Mam Sung sommes allés au restaurant assez cher pour Thaïlande pour diner. Lundi matin il a observé notre leçons et parler avec le directeur avant que nous sommes allés au Kutchum Pattana. Après ça nous avons visité l’hôpital où Dave a fait ...
