But the good news, I seem to be getting my grove back. I used to sit at home thinking, I really much update the blog, but then really could not think what to write. As people will know Ruteng, is not a big place, not a lot happens, I do not go out in the afternoons that is when it rains. Sometimes literally the highlight of my week has been hand washing my clothes.
However things are a changing. This week I have been to two...not one but Two parties. Not my usual scene, a priests leaving do, and the celebrations over the anniversary of some sisters arriving in Ruteng. So no drink, however lots of dancing and singing and laughing. Which seem to have done me the word of good.
I have started doing three lots of English teaching each week, which has been an absolute hoot. I have then managed to make one of the classes inclusive with to blind students, which is a massive success.
I am even managing to keep up with some of the basic conversations between the teachers, which is nice too. U til they speak Bahasa Manggarai and then I do not understand a word. It has been really hard to make friends with the teachers previously, but now things are going well. I sometimes get invited to peoples houses which in nice.
Must have done some good for me, as I walked into the local social services here and offered my help. Start on Monday helping with the classification of disbaled people in the 155 villages in the distract of Manggarai. So now I am busier than ever. I am hoping thids will help me keep motivate,d and provide weekly news on this blog....well lets wait and see what happens.
