We can be teachers just for one day…

The crew!
The  female part of the school team

Visiting western part of Malaysia means visiting Penang and Georgetown. Visiting Georgetown means dive into the depth of the Malaysian cuisine… How to make your eating budget grow? Being a volunteer!! We decided to do the barter system: accommodation against one of our big talent: ENGLISH;-) In other words, how to become a teacher in 5 minutes and spend couple of amazing days with the local people…. Thank you couchsurfing!

Lost and found, Nick (the co-owner of the school where we’re going to live and teach) with the crew are coming to get us at Firzah`s (read previous post).

Us: Yes, we’re full, we’ve eaten an hour ago.
Nick: Ok, we`re going to eat now….
(Emilia, in her mind): Are we in Poland?? You ate, but you will eat anyway. LOVE THIS COUNTRY 😉

So in 5 minutes, we are eating… and in two hours we will eat again… Jeremy and Madleen, our fellow teachers, another French couple that has been travelling for 7 months, say that this is the way it is. We like it that way!

We get to the school.. Suddenly all the people we were with in a car disappear and someone new is showing us our room. The school is located in a villa of Nick`s father who happens to have a title of a Sir and lives in Kuala Lumpur… So we have our room with a bathroom!

The first thing Emilia is thinking about is securing our belongings… So she locks the door (you don’t need a key to lock it but you need to open it)… The problem is that the key doesn`t exist… Let`s try through the window… Nope… After 5 minutes of arrival we need a locksmith!

Hello Balik Pulau 🙂
