Life at school is very busy. However it is good when we get time off. In March we had Spring break and I took the opportunity to visit Malaysia, I went to an island called Mabul and stayed at a diver's resort. My friend Fiona qualified to dive, I was happy to snorkel and sit on the beach!  I did however do an introduction to diving course, maybe next year I will do the whole course!

Here are some more photos of my time in Japan.

In Japan

Back in November I spent Thanksgiving weekend in Tokyo, Japan.  I ate lots of delicious food and saw lots of  expensive goods. Two of the highlights  were the Thanksgiving Dinner with Japanese friends, at the end of which we spent time praying in either Japanese, English  or Australian English!!!  The second was the view of Mt. Fuji from the aeroplane.

One of the reasons I am here is to teach these beautiful children. Lots of new names of various nationalities. In class 1B there are children who are  Korean, Indian/Chinese, Turkish, German, Swedish, English/Japanese, Korean/English, Malaysian, Japanese/Belgium, Australian, Scottish, English. They are keen to learn and have made great progress. They all speak English as well as 1 or 2 other languages. As with every class there are those who test my patience!!!
Autumn colours were spectacular.

I know this is  well over due but life has undertaken some big changes. Living in a new country and starting a new job seem to have consumed all my energy and time. Here are some pictures of the school taken from my balcony.
