We are now at the airport, on our way home to Yangon.
The local guide was unclear about which airline we are taking. My hand luggage got checked in before I thought to stop it from happening. However, it turns out that we are part of something rather special. We are to be aboard the maiden voyage of a brand new airline. It was worth the hour delay as everyone crowded onto the runway and snapped shots of the aircraft and the crew.
The immigration officer wrote Northern Ireland for my nationality which I believe to be a problem. He also wrote the wrong visa start date and visa type. However the police man topped that by looking at my boarding pass upside down for a good number of minutes. Oh dear. I did point out these discrepancies, whilst praying that I wasn’t labeled as a problem foreigner because that would severely hamper my future return visits!
As I reflect on the week long trip, I am a little sore and more than a little tired; it really has been amazing to see the conditions that our teachers live and work in. It helps to be able to visualize the conditions which they have on a daily basis and allows me to adapt my training to what is most useful for the local teacher and students so that the enthusiasm and motivation that the Rakhine people have for improving the lives of their villages does not go to waste due to a lack of knowledge on how to implement such ideas.
