Today was the activity I was most looking forward to -  Student English Conversation and Learning.  We pulled away from the ship around 8:20, about half an hour late.  Our bus ride was about an hour long, on some of the bumpiest roads I've ever been on.

 Finally we reached the school in which we would be teaching.

After a warm-up activity we got in groups to start teaching the students beginning English.

What an amazing experience!  I wish we had more time in the school.   Some groups got to teach 2 lessons since their schools were closer.  But I'm sure our school was best. 

Around 11 o'clock we started our long bus ride back to town.

Did some shopping at the stores at Amber Cove before the long walk back to the ship.

We had a relaxing afternoon and went down to dinner around 6:30 with our regular table-mates.

At 9:45 we left the dock to get rid of the waste from the ship.   We will be back in port around 7:00am.
