24/1/2009 – This one time, at band camp…
This evening I went to a University campus with Lin to see a group children from her school perform their Marching Band dress rehearsal before the big competition on Monday. The kids had spent 2 weeks at Band Camp, only seeing their parents once for an afternoon. They had been rehearsing every day and were clearly looking tired and pleased to see the parents.
We walked across the floodlit stadium where Lin mingled with parents, children and teachers and I took in the atmosphere of this Thai family-school event where I was the only foreigner.
We took our seats and watched the kids perform their routine which they hope will win them the Bangkok-wide competition. It was very cute, and lots of fun, whether it`s enough to win the competition I couldn`t say.
