School Painting

By 6 years ago
Categories Chiang Mai

Never a dull day in the village, our planned lazy Saturday morning lounging around on basehut and recovering from Friday night’s fun soon turned into a day of work when we heard about the village school clean-up taking place.A charity group were in town and all set to tidy and paint the school armed with a local Thai singing celebrity to help pull in the troops. Before we knew it we were all yielding paintbrushes and rollers and helping in the efforts to paint the school a very vibrant mix of white and blue panels. Everyone from the village lent a hand, some with more success than others, and the job was soon complete. To thank everyone for their efforts the villagers cooked up a banquet for us all to share, with very full bellies and a new snazzy looking school we all headed back to base for a well deserved lazy afternoon.
