Cooking Class/Flat Tire/Pool Party

Cooking Class/Flat Tire/Pool Party

My univeristy hosted a cooking day for us. they took us to a fantastic market and then took us to the head coordinator, Pi Maa’s, house to cook.

I was in charge of peeling the shrimp! I could handle that. We were shown how to cook Pad Thai, Tomyum Soup, and Mango with Sticky Rice!

This is mango with sticky rice. It is basically just rice coconut milk and sugar, but it sure makes for one delicious snack.

On our way back from Pi Maa;s house, just as we were crossing the bridge to our apartment, we hear a HUGE bang and our driver pulls over. This is what the bang was- Our tire blew. So the driver started to call people to come help, but two of our exchangers, Dhruv and Bruno, busted out the manly skills and changed the tire for us.

Last week we all went to a pool party hosted by the other university, Chula, in Bangkok. It was a pool party hosted at a hotel with the pool on the rooftop. There was alcohol and food for the evening at a cost of zero dollars. Like every backpacker – I love FREE.
