Earlier this year we welcomed for the first time to Traidhos a group of students and staff from Wells International School, Bangkok. The week was a mix of adventure activities, cultural awareness, team building and a day on the farm. The team was split into three groups allowing the students to work in small groups.
The staff and students joined us for a week of fieldwork, adventure and cultural exploration, and a definite highlight was the jungle-cooking course. Firstly, the students built cooking fires and were amazed to discover that it could take the whole morning to prepare just one meal! As the students were in the ‘jungle’ there were no bowls, utensils or pots and pans so everything had to be made from natural materials. They barbequed meat and corn on bamboo skewers, steamed mushrooms in banana leaf packages and cooked sticky rice inside bamboo tubes.
