28 March and 4 April (2014)
Met a bunch of elementary school students over the last 2 weeks. The first school was called "Peace Elementary School" and it was indeed peaceful and the second school that I visited was called "Shinwha Elemetary School" which reminded me of my old favorite Korean singers "Shinwha". The students are excited as always. Enjoyed taking selfies with little girls. As you can see I wore a "gho"(dress for boys) to a boy and it was a little small for him so we can see his "kera" (belt). I didn't want to upset him by telling him that he was too big for the dress because he volunteered very very willing to participate. Sometimes the students make fun of the traditional clothes. But I guess that is just beings kids. May be that is how they show their excitement.
Other that wearing "gho" and "kira", we also got some time to play games for both the classes. We played "Captain Roulette". So the class was divided into 2 teams and there will be 3 rounds. Nine students will represent each team (since there are 18 swords in total). Each student from different team will strike the barrel alternatively and whoever makes the head pop out of the barrel two times out of the three loses. The students were really competitive because of the prize: Bhutanese currency.
