Visiting the school of Ma-Kyoun-Galet

Visiting a Moken school
checking pictures We wanted to see something of the normal live and how the kids get their school education. Aung said, the kids get their books from the government, but they would have to buy their own pencils and exercise books. So we bought an armfull of material the local shop and went to the school one morning. The kids certainly liked what we brought, but the biggest sensation were digital cameras. We could have photographed them over and over again, the kids did not get tired.

Chatting with the teacher about the circumstances of education and the kids themselves. If only I had spend less time photographing and more time joining them, I now could write more about what she said...
