Here is the throat singer. Just amazing the different tones he can make.
This morning I went out to a school on the north west side of Ulaanbaatar with 3,000 students. The kids only go for 4 hours a day, so they have 3 sessions, morning, aft, late afternoon to teach them all. Grade 1 to 11. Teachers teach all 3 sessions for very little pay.
At the school there are 11 Mongolian teachers teaching English. So they also want help with their English, so I just sat and talked to them for an hour.
Then I watched a 7 minute play put on by the 6 graders in English which was really good. The play told the story of the history of their district which is called the onion mountain.
The plan is to help the 11th graders get ready for their test in English to go to University. So I will go once a week when I return in May.
It was fun.
Yesterday for the second time we toured the Children’s Creative Center.
On Saturday Laura took Westie to a gym class for the first time. Ages 10 months to 19 months, so he was just able to go.
March 14, 2011 I became an American citizen. Matt and I traveled to Toronto Canada to visit the American Embassy for the second time.
This morning I had my new South Korean friend Sonia over, so I could teach her how to quilt.
