Tomorrow I start my orientation at the school and will be sitting in on some classes to observe and meeting some of my future students. Most of the students there are young kids, which I am very excited about. The kids here are full of life and happy. There are 10 year olds driving around on motorcyles down the streets. There are MILLIONS of motorcycles everywhere, its crazy. You will see a picture of a small parking lot outside of a Plaza mall I went to today, full of them, and that is just one side!
My trip wasn't that bad and went pretty smooth. The 12 and half hours over the pacific went by pretty quick because it was at night and I slept somehow here and there, aside from the screaming Chinese kid that everyone wanted to strangle. Probably better to keep a low profile here, I already get enough attention as it is. I have yet to even see another American here, other than my roomie Mikal. Today at the mall was crazy because all the girls were just starring at me(not that Im not used to that....haha) and whispering to each in Bahasa
Well, I would say I have to go because I have tons of errands to do and I have bills to pay and I have little time to do it all, but that would be a lie. I have to go explore a little more and Mikal and I are going to take a motorcycle taxi into the main city area and get something to eat and find me a basketball. I will be in touch soon and you know I will have lots of stories to tell and pictures to show. I love you all, and I thank everyone for their support and excitement for my life adventure.
