March. What? Like when? I’m definitely not starting the fifth month; I’d have to remember that. Not possible. Besides, I’m starting a second chapter of my volunteering in the village of Chambok in the province of Kampong Speu. I live with my family in a colourful house on high legs number 27 and I really like it. I´ve been here for four days only, and I’ve already been on a two-day track between the waterfalls, the forest and the jungle with a hammock somewhere in the middle of the jungle on the top of the mountain where the tigers are walking nearby; but I won´t believe unless I see them, haha. For dinner, we roasted some fish and meat on a bamboo stove and cooked on a fire in the water of a nearby waterfall where we took a quick shower. Then I hung a hammock on a tree for the first time in my life, we made a fire and we were lying in the hammocks in the middle of nowhere with the stars above us, the fire in front of us, and ubiquitous chirping and the noise of the forest. It was a moment when I smiled for myself in the hammock under my blanket and just repeated “thank you that I can”.
My volunteering will be mostly giving English classes three times a day, not only to small children but also to primary school pupils. Every morning, afternoon and evening. Also, every day I will be coming to the community to show both adults and teenagers how to use the PC and teach them the basics so they could become independent users. I’m going to ride a bicycle to come to all these places, so I will hopefully burn all the rice calories, won´t I? I’m looking forward and I´m also very curious.
