... when I'm prepared but due to lack of time for preparation I often have half prepared lessons and sometimes getting the kids to talk is like drawing blood out of a stone. My ability to work off the cuff has certainly improved and I am able to reuse a lot of the material in many of the classes.
A few other very interesting things have happened, but I cannot write them here at this moment. Overall, I am enjoying my life here, ...
... motorcycles, scooters, bikes, and pedestrians. The light just turns green and you go. Driving is insane, there might as well not be any lanes painted on the road. Driving here is kind of like a cat, "if it fits, it sits", so "if it fits, it goes"... and sometimes not even if it fits it still goes. But the taxis are pretty cheap which is good.
There are a ton of markets around here, so we went to the supermarket to get food to keep ...
... all day for both of us. We have both been feeling a bit isolated and lonely since being here and it was a good debrief. Plus she helped me to buy a travel card which means I should be able to rent some bikes around town freely. I'll add that to my to-do-list. It is a Sunday night and tomorrow is a public holiday, so I am with the 3 amigos writing this while they play computer games and do random stuff on their computers.

... how to catch the bus myself tomorrow. Unfortunately it started pouring rain and we went a couple of kms too far, which meant a fair walk in the rain, but at least I think I know the way. By the late afternoon I was totally exhausted and lay in my room for a couple of hours and wrote this. I am optimistic about tomorrow, as it will enlighten me about what I will actually be doing here in the coming months. I think it will take a few days yet to adjust.
