Comic #13 - Vacation - 9 November 2016
When you are a kid, you love school holidays. But the truth is, your teachers loved the holidays just as much (and very likely even more) than you did!
At least that's my experience!
Now, don't get me wrong, I absolutely love teaching. I just also happen to absolutely love vacation.
The school year in Thailand is very different than what I was used to in the United States. The first term begins in May and goes until October. The term holiday (think Christmas vacation) lasts two or three weeks, and school starts up again with the second semester from November to March. There is no Fall or Spring Break, but schools are closed for a number of Buddhist or national holidays and long weekends throughout the year.
Christmas, of course, is not a holiday in Thailand, so we usually have to go to work on the 25th of December. It almost always falls during midterms... yay...
