We’ve arrived! This is home for the next two years or more. We had been told earlier in the summer that it wasn’t complete, but it was ready two days before we arrived – there’s a building site at the back and the next set of homes is still under construction. It’s very smart and has three bedrooms, so there’s plenty of space for visitors. It’s also reminiscent of Landridge, where we lived in Singapore.
It’s not just our home that’s similar to Singapore – the temperatures are in the 30s and it’s very humid. The vegetation is lush and tropical (lots of palm trees, and we saw pineapple plants on the way to the supermarket today), there are cicadas and mosquitos, and familiar bird calls.
It looks beautiful! Are your neighbours other teachers?
Yes, I think so, but not all from NLCS.
Message from Phil: blimey, that’s pretty cool!
And do you have a swimming pool near your home, to cool off (and/or how far for a swim in the sea)?
There’s a pool at school, which Judy has used, and the closest sea is a 15-minute bus ride away. Once our car has arrived, we’ll be able to explore the beaches.
I didn’t know you were getting a car!
Yes! It should come next week, and it’s a Kia ‘Morning’.
Looks brilliant Alan!
