Happy May Day Holiday
Hello everyone – and happy May 1st! It seems to be a holiday in a lot of places round the world. Happy teacher’s day to Pary in Iran, and Leila have a good holiday in Finland. Cris – I hope you enjoy the start of 1984 on your day off as well. Let me know how you get on with it.
Bye bye Cris and thank you for your final blog. I will miss you. You can say that we ‘met’ each other whilst blogging. And how interesting to hear that you dad was a photographer. I can see that you have inherited his talent. I am looking forward to hearing from you via the readers comments soon.
Well, it’s a holiday here in Thailand too, and I have come to the beach with my family. We have come to Pattaya, which is about 150km away from Bangkok. I took a half day from work yesterday to drive down and beat the crowds. So we have put Rachel to bed (she is much better now – thank you for all the good wishes), Steve is reading his new book (Millions and Billions, or is it Billions and Billions by Carl Sagan - I think its Billions and Billions) and I am in an internet café with Josh. Josh is pretending to type, and I am doing the real thing. It is quite difficult to keep a 3-year old occupied for long, so this will not be one of my longer blogs.
Geat to hear that Xuan will be the next student blogger. She lives in Vietnam, which is not too far from my neck of the woods. I visited Vietnam 9 years ago and had a wonderful time, but I bet it has changed a lot since then. I am looking forward to finding out more about modern day Vietnam, as well as getting to know Xuan. I wonder if it’s a public holiday in Vietnam as well?
While we wait for Xuan to blog, please think about corrections to the following sentences from the readers:
(1) ** In first place, water and ice (Adriana)
(2)** I can rely on fruits and vegetables for a long time without ever missing the meats or anything else (Habooba)
(3) ** I have never thought that fridges can tell us about persons (Merce)
(4) ** Any way I liked the beach’s photo (Pary)
(5) **Peoples who live in city area are able to used fridge (Silwal Kishor)
And I'll leave with you with a short vocabulary challenge. What do 'to beat the crowds' and 'my neck of the woods' mean?
Enjoy your day, whatever you are doing, and speak to you all soon,
