Here are some photos of my host family:
This is Wan, the 3 year old that lives with my host family (she is the niece of my host parents). She is soooo cute and was my good friend. I spent many hours entertaining her consequently she picked up a few English phrases.
This little baby used to wander over to our house, take one look at me and start crying. This was a bit of a joke, ‘the baby is scared of the forang’ they would say. I am pleased to report that a few days before I left I managed to convince the baby forangs aren’t scary and this little boy became my friend, would crawl up onto my knee – happy as larry!
This old lady is really cool. She would chatter away at me oblivious to the fact I couldn’t understand a word she was saying! Her teeth are red as she chews bettle-nuts all day. I took a photo of her and the kids on the digital camera and showed her – she thought it was very cool, I don’t think she has ever had her photo taken on a digital camera before as she had such a big reaction to seeing herself – she thought it was hillarious!
