Here are just a handful of pictures. These were taken in or around my new apartment, which is right next to my new school. I’m on the fourth floor (and so is my classroom), so I think I’ll get lots of exercise! It’s been fun today, shopping around and observing. I ate lunch out for about $1.50, and it wasn’t spicy (yay for me)! But my new friend, Miriam, found out the pork fried rice was definitely spicy. Miriam is a new 6th grade teacher like me, and she’s also my neighbor — so I think we’ll become good friends!
It’s hard to know what kinds of things to buy and how settled I should get here. Two years is a long time…but what will I do with the things I acquire when I leave?
Thinking of you all and so grateful for a way to share everything with you. I am uber-tired (maybe because it’s 3 am Washington time?), but I’m trying to stay up until at least 8 pm tonight! The Lord is gracious, providing in even the smallest ways. He is so good!
