Boy am I Jazzed

Filed under: Ecuador — lstollin @ 11:05 pm

Today I gave a 45-minute MS Word Tips and Tricks class to my colleagues at school as part of an in-service day, and I had a packed house in the computer lab and got a lot of murmurs of approval as I shared shortcuts.  At one point a woman called out, “Where have you been all my life?”!   Now, given that my self-esteem is generated entirely from within, this appreciative outburst had little impact on me; I convey it here simply as an objective reporter.

After the training, Joy and I did yoga for the first time at the school with 4 other teachers, which was strenuous and relaxing.  Then after walking home together (it was a treat to walk home from school accompanied by Joy), we took a taxi down to the Mariscal, the big tourist area.  There we had tasty Vietnamese noodle bowls followed by passionfruit creme brulee.  Wow.  Back at home just now, I figured out how to wrap text around my pictures on this blog!  It was easy enough that I went back and revised the last 3 or 4 entries.

Quite a great day for a geeky, lucky guy.
