Well, a lot has happened since my last entry, and I can at least successfully say that I survived my first week at work. I can also say that I feel exhausted and overworked like an in demand cow.

My first day they had arranged for a driver to take me to a high school quite far away from the main office, and there I was to be teaching 3 classes of what I was told would be about 10-12 students. Upon arrival at that school, I was forced ...
