I'll be basking in the hot Ethiopian sun for the next three weeks. The temperature in Addis this past month was generally in the mid to heigh seventies (low to mid twenties Celsius.) I'm glad we'll be indoors all day, every day.
The class I'll be teaching is a 5-day intensive on Academic Writing. I'll repeat the course three times to three different groups of Ethiopian government officials.
What I'm looking forward to the MOST during this time is seeing three colleagues from APU. Sue Clark, Mary Grams and Yuriko Glessner will be coming to Addis to administer an English test. I am thoroughly looking forward to visiting with people who know me and whom I know...
OK, back to my preparations.
