The Wider Image: Back to school for Thailand's elderly
Somjit Teeraroj, 77, who studies at the the School for the Elderly in Chiang Rak Noi subdistrict, walks to a school bus stop in Ayutthaya, Thailand, March 14, 2018. Somjit, a widow, said she wasn't lonely before but when her husband of 40 years died in an accident she was left on her own. Her son and daughter occasionally visit her but it was the school that helped her to recover from her loss. "I've been looking forward to every Wednesday which is the only day where I go to school, dress up as a school student and meet friends. We got to talk and laugh together," Somjit said.
