Was dropped off at the bus station after lunch to head for Khorat again for another English Camp this weekend. Only about 400 yards down the road after pulling out of the station though the bus came to a halt with water pouring from the back of it. For some reason instead of walking the 5 minutes back to the bus station we had to wait at the side of the road for 1.5 hours while they fixed the bus which seemed to consist mainly of whacking the engine with the biggest hammer they could find, must have worked though.

Once we were moving again the fun didn't stop there with the hobbit sized leg-room for the 2.5 hour journey and being almost able to rest my head on the seat in front without having to lean forward. Adding to this was the fact the seat was not completely bolted down having it bounce with every slight bump we hit making me almost glad my legs were jammed in to stop me springing upwards even more.

Finally arriving in Khorat I met two other volunteers here to help, Trine (Denmark) and Christine (USA) with again there not being enough people to help out so Pen, the coordinator, got in touch with an Australian guy, Evan, living in Khorat to help out also. Further reinforcements came in the form of Kat who I'd met at the first English Camp and was arriving to leave and go home having finished teaching but was soon persuaded to stay and help for one more day.
