I've now learned how to order coffee and have been pretty content with only knowing that. I stick to the important things in life.
We're really enjoying making new friends and settling into our new home. We live in two rooms of our college's hotel that have been combined to make a sort of apartment. It's actually really nice and WAAY better (and maybe bigger!) than the house that we were living in before (read about that one here.)
We have some nice big windows, maid service, and a bunch of other foreign teachers live on the same hall as us. Our school really went out of their way to make sure that we were comfortable. We feel very blessed.
One extra perk that we've really been enjoying recently is all of the helpful signs that they left around the place. There's two on our bed stands that warn us:
"NO SMOKINGIN BEDPLEASE
"FORYOURSAFETY PLEASEKEEP CHSH AND
VALUABLE GOOD SIN HEAD STAGE"
and just in case you were feeling like doing an Irish jig in the shower:
Now you know that you might slip. Whew! Dodged THAT bullet!
My all time favorite sign so far though is this fire safety sign that is attached to both of our doors:
I guess I will tryyy to not worry if a fire is occurring. It might be difficult though since I'm not sure where exactly my excellency seat is and will therefore have a hard time pointing to it as I'm trying to run to the information hall to ride on a secure belt with the safeguards.
I guess things would be a lot easier if they just posted one of the signs we saw in a temple earlier this week:
More updates soon!
Love you guys!
