Sister Abroad Update #1
So, my sister Kentucky is faring quite well... Here's a pic of her with other teachers there.
That is her in the black and white striped shirt.
They ALL look happy and excited to be there. So that makes me happy!
She was assigned to Al Ain, some 80 or 90 miles east of the capital Abu Dhabi
So of course you know I went and read about the city.
It seems to be rocky desert land...
...containing a plethora of oasis.
That's quite nice.
She arrived there this morning (yesterday our time), and sent a picture from her hotel balcony:
How beautiful and lush is that?!
She is teaching kindergarten and she starts on Sunday. And she gets her apartment next week some time. Hopefully she doesn't have to buy a car, but I am sure she'll find something she likes if she does have to. She's been there for a week, and she's getting accustomed to the place. We've talked a couple of times a day, even on Skype. So that is great.
I still miss her, though. And that's alright.
I am MORE happy that she's seeing new places and doing great things.
