Dad's trip sadly comes to an end

Thursday, 16th December 2010

"We left Pakse on Thursday morning to journey south following the mighty Mekong towards the area on Lao known as the "Four Thousand Islands". Travelling through Lao one quickly realises the importance of the Mekong as it seem to provide the life blood to the whole country.

We eventually wound our way north toward Savannakhet. On the way we called into a school (I think it was a secondary school at Ton Han) where the school family had cleared two large flat areas in front of the school which had been littered with stones and rocks. When asked, one of the teachers who spoke good English told me the school could not afford any sporting equipment for the children.

That night in Savannakhet, I took the Child's Dream team to dinner at a delightful local restaurant run by an expat American married to a local Lao lady. After dinner I gave Koy a little bit of money to buy two soccer balls and two net ball kits for the children at the Ton Han school.

We all should make such a trip as for me it puts our lives into perspective, makes me realise how lucky I have been and humbled to see the pleasure on the faces of so many less priviledged who are so pleased to get a bit of a leg up."
