The teaching is going slow so far, there was nyeppi two weeks ago, and exams last week, so ive only been teaching some optional classes in the afternoon.
Next week should change that though... Class every morning couple of standard groups.
The level of english in the schools is surprisingly good for the age of the children.cso far i've taught kids between 9 and 12.
Subjects ranging from introductions to food and traffic.
The teaching here is very different from teaching in the netherlands, kids really respect their teachers here, they always stand up when they talk to the teacher, and would never dare to speak out of place.
It makes teaching a lot easier, not having to play police officer aswell as teacher.
I spent this weekend hiking hanging out at the beach and visiting a hindu temple.
The hike was not just a hike, we also gathered trash to clean the enviroment and hopefully create some awareness to the enviromental issues to the balinese people ( plastic is a reeeeeeaaally big issue here)
The Hindu temple was beautiful, but very crowded.
The water in the temple is 'holy' somehow and used to cleanse ones soul if you bathe in it, so theres scores of people waiting in line to be able to bathe there.
Its a besutiful sight though(see pictures) and im really glad i went.
While writing this, i dozed off for a bit, and was scared shitless when i woke up. Something jumped me, something big and alive, and it either bit or scratched me! Apparently it was a gecko, that somehow thought i was a good pillow, and cause i jumped up frightened, it bit or scratched me in fear before running off.
Its not dangerous, but man... It startled me!
Anyway, time for dinner,
