Well the adventures continue here in Taiwan. Things here are going really well. We ha our first full week of teaching and man are those kids crazy!!!! I teache a class where I have 10 two year olds. The funny part is that we are supposed to teach four new words in a unit which bascially means that two year olds are learning to speak english and recognize flash cards. Actually they have been doing really good, and I already feel in love with all of them. Does anybody mind if I adopt 10 kids into the family???? Our adventures continue with the daily exercises here. This morning we saw a backward bar sit up, which is about 10 feet off the groung. But for this particular move you have to bend your back so far back that it almost breaks off. We also have a new addition to the daily exercises while we are running on the track. We now have the tight rope walker who walks this long piece of cement which is a bit raised for about an hour or so. We are still trying to figure out what this exercise really does. We are working really long hours, about 9 and a half a day, but it's okay. They really work hard here though, so we may have better work discipline when we get home. We checked out a night market the other night which was really fun. You can really buy anything you want at them. They stay open pretty late and they are soooooo busy. We are enjoying the air conditioned apartment during this humidity. We have another schduled typhoon coming this weekend which means we probably won't miss any school. We found a great sushi restaurant the other day so we at least have one good place to eat where we know what most things are. We are missing everyone!!!! We will post pictures soon!!
