It’s hard to believe that I am nearly at the end of week three at Gajayana University. I have established some routines now, like preparing lessons, visiting the laundry a couple of times a week and buying my main meal each day from Ibu Kusno. Ibu Kusno and I don’t share any language but she knows that I am vegetarian and that I want my food freshly cooked, and seems glad to have a new regular customer.
I am having a bit more trouble getting used to the storms and blackouts but am learning from the teachers here to just takes things as they come. Those afternoon storms are just going to happen any way.
Everyone had just been moved so they had new speaking partners when these pictures were taken. They took it pretty well and were all practicing using conversational rejoinders, like ‘Ah-hah’ (which they think is funny), ‘Lucky you!’ and “That’s terrible’.
