A quick beginning blog... Quick, because I should work on planning my life as a teacher! Drawers and cabinets to explore, things to arrange, etc.
I am here, and I love it! I mean, who wouldn't wanna stay in a country where you're told, "Estas linda!" ("You're pretty!") after traveling with no sleep for 36 hours! It has been a HUGE blessing so far to be here with IAS, the Inter-American School, because they picked me up from the airport, had cell phones for us right away, have taken us on tours, are teaching us about public transportation here, and are taking care of lots of stuff that I had to figure out on my own when I studied in France. It is totally worth not flushing toilet paper, not being close to home where everything's familiar... I can't think of bad things right now. I like it here. And I love the family I'm staying with. They are very, very nice and helpful. The Spanish is...slowly improving. :)
Anyway, off to work. I'll try to explain more about the school and stuff later, and I supposed I'll try to post a blog at least once a month.
