Saying Good-bye / Abschied nehmen


Yes, today was rather sad.

This week I had to say good-bye to my History, English and Latin pupils. Today was my last day.

Some classes gave me some farewell presents. My 7b History / Latin class gave me a picture (and some wine and brandy!).

Four girls from my Latin 8a and 8b gave me some letters to start a pen-pal relationship with pupils at the ACS in Beirut.

I had a good time at Edenkoben amidst the vineyards of Germany. Now we'll see what Beirut offers.

Less than two days and I will be in Beirut!

Are you a real doctor... do you have a PhD?

Yes, I earned my Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkeley in Ancient History and Mediterranean Archaeology

The salary at ACS?
A bit less gross than in Germany, but the ACS is paying my apartment and utilities (energy, water, etc...).
All told I'm doing a little better there financially (but not much better).

Hi Duane
How are you?
I hope you had a good flight!!!
Did you get our poster?

Duane in Lebanon said...

No, I did not get your poster.
I was no longer in the apartment when you put it in the mailbox there.
