“When was the last time you did something for the first time?” That quote is really from a television commerical in the Middle East for Emirates Airlines, but I liked it because I felt like I was doing something for the first time every week!
I taught overseas in international schools for 11 years from 2001 t0 2012. My teaching assignments included fashionable Milan, Italy; exotic Aleppo, Syria; laid-back Kingston, Jamaica and historic Cairo, Egypt. How lucky I was to see Syria and Egypt before all the turmoil that followed me.
Now I’m a recovering school teacher. No, that should be “retired” school teacher who is enjoying life in sunny Florida.
In this blog are emails I sent to family back home. They are a record of one of the most exciting times in my life.
