On Thursday I put up an English Board in the hallway of my middle school. As you can see, the board is mostly pics from my recent road trip with Eric and some from around Richmond, all with simple English captions that, hopefully, the children will be able to read at some point. As I was putting it up my fellow teachers would walk by and exclaim "sugoi!" (great/awesome/etc) It was fun to see how excited they got to see my friends, family and life. They also alerted me to the fact that everyone pictured was very attractive. I assured them that America had its fair share of homely people but I simply lacked the time and inclination to associate with them.
