Today we ate breakfast at 8:30 and then started our program evaluation at 9:15 am. Aj Nim conducted the meeting. The students rated the program a big success. They were very pleased with their experience. Only a few suggestions were given. I do not know how you can improve a program that is already perfect.

Following the program we ate lunch at BCNC. The students took the afternoon to begin their packing and complete last minute laundry. Jip, Maew and I ran some last minute errands. I had to purchase an extra suitcase in order to carry all of the souvenirs and gifts I collected over the 3 weeks and I had to go to the wallpaper store to pay my bill. I am going to be converting the girls' playroom into a Thai room so I wanted to purchase Thai wallpaper. I really like the paper and can't wait to get started on the project. We returned to campus around 3:30 pm. Aj Mike, Aj Ann and Abigail (from USA) stopped in to see Pi Jip. We had a lovely conversation. It was Aj Mike who connected me with Pi Jip and assisted me with the development of the course.

This evening Pi Jip made plans for Maew and I to join Abigail and Malcolm for dinner. We went to a lovely outdoor restaurant surrounded by trees, waterfalls, flowers, and accent lighting. Pi Jip ordered an array of food that we all sampled. It was a great evening. Malcolm is a Messiah student spending the spring semester in Chiangmai. He has had 2 weeks of language school and is really mastering the Thai language. I was so impressed. Oh, to be young again when my memory did not fail me as much. We took Malcolm back to his Thai home. His parents are Chinese descent and are currently visiting China, so, he is staying at the house with the house workers. Malcolm wanted me to pass on to his family a big hello. He is adjusting very well and appears to naturally fit into the Thai culture..

When we returned to campus, Nong Maew's expertise in luggage packing was required. You certainly can tell that she has practiced packing more than once. With much repacking we finally resolved our issue. Now the question remains, will we be over weight? 50 lbs is the maximum. We will wait and see. Goodnight!
