We arrived in Pavlodar on Saturday morning. We do not have internet in the apartments yet, so I have not been able to post to the blog or elsewhere. Getting settled in. Today is the first day at school. We had a quick, and I mean quick (maybe 15 minutes), opening address from the principal, then a school tour. Afterwards, we had our required employment health check. In a few moments, we will meet with our departments. The school is fascinating. The staff has been great. Will post more when I have better connectivity. Peace and love to you all.
