Aung Aung

We got a lovely surprise last Sunday night when we got a phone call, 'Teacher Sheila, it's Aung Aung. Can I come and see you?' So on Monday morning, we shared a wee breakfast with Aung Aung, who was the oldest boy at Hle Bee when we first went. He was Jason Cunningham's friend and he immediately asked us how Jason was. Somebody please tell Ruby to tell Jason.
Aung Aung is now 17 and is at New Blood School in Grade 9. He is a boarder but goes home every week to his home in the paddy fields. Yup that's the one I fell in. His English continues to improve and he looks great. We took the laptop down to the cafe and sat and showed him photos of himself 4 years ago when he was 13. We were touched that he made the effort to find us and see us. We haven't seen him for 2 years. Just lovely.
