Wow, well there's the first week gone! It's been a bit of a crazy week actually so let me take a few minutes to let you know what its like out here. In a word, hot. Its hot in the morning, hot all day and then hot in the evening too. But the showers are cold so that's nice... sometimes.

I arrived last Monday and pretty much went straight to sleep for a few hours, then woke up to a 'what on earth am I doing here?' kind of panic which didn't really subside for quite a few days. I found it really really hard being away from all my friends and family and being amongst strangers and just wanted to come home! I know that sounds really childish but I just seemed so far away. And the teaching in the schools was horrible! Nice, well-behaved Sri Lankan children? Yeah right! Chaos and unrulyness is more like it! Although we did go to a lovely school today where the children were lovely so maybe it was just a difficult school last week.

Anyway, had a lovely week at the Hikkadua beach this weekend. Managed to get myself completely burned
