    We went to the desert, in an SUV with no name, for the first time last weekend. Since a four wheel drive vehicle is required (and we don't have one) we were travelling with Verna and Robert (a veteran MHI couple). They have become our official tour guides and good friends.

I ended up teaching for about 6 hours straight, sooo I need something to help me wind down. I liked both of my classes today though.

    ... show off in school and get a bit made up. I was also surprised to see some ankles and arms--scandalous! Another norm is wearing shear shirts...I guess as long as they go to the elbow, it's ok. Strange rules.

    My students seem to like English. Everyone in my first class said that it was their favorite subject. The levels are varied as of now, so I ave some beginners with intermediate students. ...
