Teachers in the park

When I was in Shan State last month I took a group of novice monks from the monastery at Tat Ein village on a trip to Kakku and Taunggyi. Joining us for the trip were the six teachers from the village’s primary school.

Not only was it beneficial to have the teachers along to help keep the sometimes rowdy young monks in line, it was a joy to have them accompany us. They are a friendly, polite bunch. None of the teachers had ever visited the ancient Pa-O ruins at Kakku before, so they were appreciative of the chance to see them.

Later, at the park and gardens in Taunggyi, the teachers followed the monks’ cue and loosened up and got a bit silly posing for the camera. Another good outing with a bunch of good people!
