My plan at Bangkok airport was to buy a copy of Harry Potter in Thai. That did not work out, as most books were in English.
But after arriving in Dunedin we did a tour of second-hand shops. Our daughter suddenly needed Barbie dolls.
At one, I was able to fill up a shopping bag with books for 5 dollars on her behalf. Sachi is a little nervous about her English, so I grabbed a range of kids’ books mainly.
