The Khlong Khuean Ganesh International Park


The Khlong Khuean Ganesh National Park is something we glimpsed whilst driving through Chachoengsao. 


We followed the signs and found the enormous bronze statue in the middle of a park - I only found out that it was bronze when I wrote this.


There was very little information that I could find in English (here is a blog post).  


I chose to walk all the way to the statue to pay respect and make a wish from the mice.


There are three of the Ganesha statue in the province.

 


Third term being a Teacher again


The third term recently finished. I can't remember everything that happened but this is an outline.



We had some rain...



We made bookmarks for Homework.


We continued learning about China - we painted some more as well.


We looked at using Coding on the computers.


There were eggs which we painted for the window. And this was the assembly



We had another assembly about The Great Fire of London.


There were quite a few things we investigated in our Science Lessons.



We investigated homonyms - and more.



We could now input the housepoints directly onto the computers!



A new roadside coffee opened 


and then so did the coffee shop - Eat My Life - wonderful.


It was Father's Day.


We made a theatre for the classroom.


The World for Eco Club



and a few smiles


and the mess outside...


And I was given some ears to look after whilst I was on Playground Duty...





Cowculator


Thinking of being a Vegan?

Description

“Each day, a person who eats a vegan diet saves 1,100 gallons of water, 45 pounds of grain, 30 square feet of forested land, 20 pounds of CO2 equivalent, and 1 animal's life.” — Cowspiracy

Climate change, ocean dead zones, fisheries depletion, deforestation, food safety, heart disease, obesity, and diabetes have all something in common: our demand for and consumption of animal products. By eliminating animal products (such as meat, dairy, and eggs) from our diet, we can reduce the amount of harm we inflict on the environment and on ourselves.

By simply entering your veganniversary (the day you became vegan) Cowculator calculates how much water, grain, forested land, CO2 equivalent, and animal lives you have saved by going vegan.

Not vegan yet? Download Cowculator today and learn the difference you can make by going vegan!



This is an interesting App which pertains to show you what advantages there are if you are Vegan - it made an interesting read but I would not become a Vegan. There are a lot of unhappy reviewers though...

Cost: Free
Ease of use: very simple
Comment: not sure why I would want this


Church of Santa Cruz




The Church of Santa Cruz is something that I came upon upon on a Walking Tour in Bangkok - Thonburi



After the Walking Tour I was made aware that you were able to see the church from the Chao Phraya River and there is also a stop nearby.



We came upon it after walking down some very small lanes.







Khao Ta-Kiab Beach


Khao Ta-Kiab Beach is the beach we must visit when we visit Hua Hin and we usually stay at Anantasila Villa by the Sea.

Khao Ta-Kiab beach is a long stretch of beach which is still largely un-spoilt.


We always take a ride on the horses - but we do wonder how they can last so long in the heat...



There is sometimes a selection of jet-ski and banana boats to choose from.



Then there were the monks that walked along the beach in the morning - this does seem to be something regular?



Watch out for the jelly-fish 





and the traffic though.




There are a number of restaurants on the beach which are certainly worth visiting. There was a cafe but it was closed when I wanted to visit.



We have been here again.

 







Things to do in Hua Hin



Here are a few ideas of things to do if you visit Hua Hin.

Salted Egg Flavor - sp


This is really something that I would not try - would you?
Cafe Amazon.


Thinking about Trump...


Wondering how #Trump has managed to last as the President of the USA for so long.



Wat Kalayanamit Woramahawihan


Wat Kalayanamit Woramahawihan is somewhere I came upon on a Walking Tour in Bangkok - Thonburi. As I read the description I have to admit in not seeing the Golden Bell though...

I found very little information about the temple that was not repeated but this is the best site for more information and this is a TripAdvisor Review.



I found the enormous Buddha inside but I could not find the Buddha footprint. 



Then there was a big bell by the side of the Chao Phraya River. I guess that this gives me a good reason to go again?



I do now understand that it would be something to take photographs from the river - I only took them from the entrance / land side.
