The final day, the final report. We had our longest lie-in so far, a relaxed breakfast and then set off to attempt to rid ourselves of our remaining baht, an endeavour in which our students were very successful. We experienced the Sky-train, spent some time window shopping in Paragon, an exclusive mall containing the world’s top brands, and then walked across to MBK and a chance to haggle over more reasonably priced merchandise. After a long afternoon buying souvenirs and, for some, a visit to the cinema, we returned to our accommodation to prepare for an early departure tomorrow morning.
13 students from Harwich are ready to go home. Eighteen months ago they accepted the challenge to raise funds for an expedition to the other side of the world. For the staff it has been a pleasure to travel with them and to watch them experience a new culture, work with the local community and develop as young adults. It is an expedition which requires much effort and many hours to realise, particularly on the part of Mr Cook, but it has really been worthwhile.
