Today, I woke up and had oatmeal for breakfast. Okay, now I am really getting sick of that substance. Breakfast was gratefully interrupted by a Skype call from Mom's brother, Andrew. He is the person who is always leaving hilarious Rawhide comments on the blog. We had a nice talk with him, but I, sadly, had to do my school work.
My work for the day involved finishing my book, a lesson of math, and two words of the day. I felt bad about my math lesson because I missed more problems than usual. My dad said that I should be sure to check my math problems after I complete them. I was happy to finish my book, Sea of Trolls. The ending was exactly as I predicted and I was somewhat disappointed. After this, it was already lunch time!
For lunch, we had my favorite dish of peppers. Mom cooked them along with carrots and onions. I loved them even more today. I do not know how it happened but they were extra spicy today. In fact, some of the Americans thought the food was too spicy and could not finish their peppers. I hope we can have the left overs for dinner tonight.
Since I was finished with all my work, Mom said that I should help put up the Tibetan tent. We had obtained from the Monastery a beautiful tent covered with the Tibetan auspicious symbols. These symbols all have an important role and meaning in Tibetan Buddhism. We had some technical difficulties putting the poles up to support the tent. The poles were extremely difficult to fit in place. Some people had to get under the tent in order to set things up. Near by the colorful Tibetan tent, some Tibetans were fixing a black yak hair tent. They were sewing some broken panels together. These are traditional tents used by the yak herding nomads.
