This is the view from the balcony of the apartment I've been living in for the past week. Unusually, other than the meal with my student and her teacher on Saturday, and spending all of Sunday with my student and her family, I've been living on my own with nothing much that I have to do. The proximity of the park has been good, and interesting, as I see how life in it changes through the day. Nothing exciting: early morning joggers, kids going to school, mothers with little children during the day and, in the evening, teenagers hanging out and people eating at the tables by the street, all getting louder as they drink, and then quieter again as they gradually disperse. I've also realised how much I like living in a small space when alone.
It's been a great two weeks, but in an hour I'll be picked up by my student and her mother for brunch, and then she will take me to the airport.
