Today passed easily, partly because I didn’t go chasing work. I had been told some classes would be visiting my demonstration camp first thing in the morning, so after a quick breakfast I set everything out again and prepared a talk directed to older students that included a bit of a motivational speech to get the kids thinking about their own personal goals and dreams. I waited for a class to come and this is where the slacking off began. I probably should have gone investigating earlier than I did. Instead I used the time to do some gear repairs. I sealed a crack in my water bottle, reglued the patch on the side wall of my tyre and sealed up some abrasions in my panniers. Once completed, I ventured into the school halls to find out what was going on. I ended up giving Class 8 and 9 a kick up the butt. Over the next couple of hours I presented my talk to about 60 students and their teachers. I was then told a final class would pass through. And so I waited, and waited. They never came and I never went in search of them. Instead, I planned a to-do list for the remaining tasks I want to complete before leaving Kathmandu. Before I knew it, it was the end of the day and time to pack everything up and join the evening’s Toastmaster session.
