Snow shots

Here are some belated pictures of the track (what the students call the “playground”) after it snowed the other day. Noticeably absent are the obscenities that appeared after the first and only time it snowed last winter. These are taken from the building I live in (8th floor), which is also home to the international students (6th & 7th floor). The British A-level program and Junior 1 students are on floors 1-5. This taken from the south side of the field.


I teach all of my senior students (10th grade) in this building on the 3rd floor. It’s on the east side of the field.


This shot looks north at the stands and west at the new dormitory building, which rumor reports we’ll be moving into in the next month. Rumor has also had it that we’d be living there by September 1, 2008, then it shifted to October, then there was a possibility we’d move in February before the new term started. I am basically hoping that these are further lies and I don’t have to move all my stuff down eight floors and then up nine more floors… multiple times until all it’s all transferred. I arrived with three suitcases but now it’s amazing to see how much stuff Anna and I have accumulated after 18 months!

Something I should do which I haven’t yet is take pictures of the rest of our campus. There are four academic buildings, an administrative building, cafeteria/auditorium, pool/art building, library/orchestra hall/art studio, a dormitory, the post office, and teacher housing. There are also badminton, volleyball, basketball, and tennis courts. Someday… I will take pictures or maybe video.
