So in the three and a half days we’ve been here in Montero, we’ve spent almost all our time trying to get our long-term Visas finalized. Things are going relatively smoothly, but it still is a slow process with lots to do. The last two days we’ve been down in Santa Cruz (the really big city…2 million people vs. ~100k in Montero) in and out of government offices, and we have at least two more days to go.
Apart from Visas I got in to my first class today, I was helping out the teacher of a computer class for kindergardeners. About half of them were playing around in Microsoft Paint, the other half used some simple educational games. Tomorrow I’ll spend a bit with my first young adult class, which promises to be a bit more challenging.
Also, I’ve got the picture of our house that I promised in the last post:
The window to the left of the door is our bedroom, and the window to the right is our kitchen and living room (which you enter through a door just outside the right of the picture). The next door down is an empty bedroom, visitors welcome!
