Day 3 began with a hike up 1100 steps to a fantastic cave. The climb was steep and tiring but our students persevered. They were rewarded with stunning views over the valley and incredible rock formations.
To cool down, students were divided up into small groups to build their own bamboo rafts. Once they had launched the rafts in the river, students raced up and down the rider with a few ‘accidentally’ taking a swim.
After lunch it was back to the project site to work on building the bridge in the local village.
Other groups also had the opportunity to plant rice, weave baskets and attend a cooking class.
The evening culminated in the artistic endeavours from both enthusiastic students and friendly locals. We enjoyed local Thai dancing, our own students’ signing and dancing, and a bamboo dance for us all to join in.
