Trading languages at dinner

When planning the trip one of our worries was how to manage restaurants. I remember restaurants being a pain even when travelling with one small kid – how will it work out with four?!

Well, so far it has worked pretty OK. It’s always a bit of a challenge trying to get the kids to read a menu, to taste food they’re not used to, and to not tear the place down or tickle the staff too violently. We get plenty of practice though – here in Koh Lanta there are so many great & affordable restaurants that we go out pretty much every day!

Last night was particularly fun. Here the waitress is teaching Dave & Jenny & Emma how to count in Thai. In return they tried to teach her to count in Swedish, Finnish, Japanese, and Chinese :o)

  1. You know this is just warming the heck out of the cockles of my heart! So wonderful. Now next, you might encourage them to ask how to say "what is that?"! :)
