Things That Probably Don't Happen At Your Preschool

There are a few things that are different in a Thai preschool. Let's look back to the end of July and see what happened on Fire Drill Day 1, Year 2555.

In order to make it more realistic they actually started a small fire inside the school.

And then they rolled the fire through the hallways.

Of course, there is the obligatory group picture.

Like all good events there was a special sign made just for that day.

Okay, I admit, the sign is a little creepy looking.

Asher seemed unmoved by the whole experience. He was unimpressed by the fire in the hallways, but he was quite taken with the small flags that the teachers carried. For some reason he calls the flags castles and for months talked about seeing castles all around the city. We didn't know what he was talking about for the longest time. I still haven't figured out why he thinks flags are called castles.

So, what do you think? Are we likely to run into these types of fire drills when we are in the US?
