After the diversions of June's various festivals, Monks have taken back their usual daily routine of bringing the cows out early in the morning, morning pujah, breakfast and class until lunch time and then afternoon class, followed by afternoon pujah, bringing back the cows to their shelters for the night and homework to finish it all up.

I let you imagine their sadness and disbelief at the end of the match. The party is over.

But we still enjoy a last game of international football for the final on Sunday.
