Our photo shoot
On Monday I received a text message from Miss Shan saying we would have our regular TB check-up at the hospital and then afterward the school wanted to take our pictures and then take us out to dinner. The next day we were told to dress nice, but not too nice. Ross called all of us and said, "Why don't we dress really nice just to show off?" Of course we were all game.
So the boys wore their suits and I wore my suit skirt a blouse and a sweater vest and we went to meet everyone for the photos. The two headmasters who were supposed to be in these photos suddenly looked pretty shabby compared to us so they went back inside to change. When they returned we meandered around the school and posed for numerous photos. No doubt these pictures will surface in some recruiting material for the school, but it was actually kind of fun and I got some nice pictures of the four of us, which will be a good memento.
After posing like models we were carted off to dinner, but we still aren't entirely sure why. Perhaps the school wants something for us. Perhaps they were bribing us. Who knows? But it was a fun meal, we ate a ton and joked around and it was nice. I also got to try rabbit, which was really good. The meat was smoked and it was really tender. We also had duck and donkey at dinner. How many people can say that they had rabbit, duck and donkey for dinner the other night?
