Details

I have the official information now. I will be in South Africa, with orientation starting 10 July. Evidently, my job description in the invitation packet is that of “primary education”, without many specifics in the way of math. I’m not sure what to make of that, other than that I will be maintaining flexibility in the months to come. The two provinces I may be in would be Mpumalanga and KwaZulu-Natal, two of the easternmost provinces. But the specific site won’t be decided until I’ve been overseas for a month and a half, or so I gather. All info is subject to change, of course.

I’m currently adding and revising links over in the right sidebar so that people can have some basic info on the country I’ll be visiting. As I read up on history and culture, I’ll post some of that here too.

Invitation

Got the email today. I’m in. July, teaching secondary ed mathematics. Where and when, you ask? That I’ll find out in the next 10 business days as the physical invitation is mailed to me. But it’s official.

I think this calls for a martini.

Update on the medical stuff (since I know that no one wanted to see that at the top of this message): the problem was not necessarily my asthma, but rather that I have been to urgent care recently and they needed to find a site that was within 4-6 hours of medical care, should I need it. So I won’t be way, way out in the boonies (which, actually, I kinda would have liked). But they found something for me, so I am happy.
