TIA is a favorite saying with the family we are staying with. It means “This is Africa”. We began to realize with the little things that we see. I went for a walk yesterday and thought I saw a strange looking cat in the distance and on getting closer I realized it was a wild monkey, TIA. Monkeys instead of squirrels. The trees are not oaks and elms but acacia trees, TIA. There are palm trees like at home but not much else in common. Linda and I went walking last night and we looked up at the southern sky for the first time. It is strange not seeing the Big Bear or Little Bear constellations, TIA. We saw the ocean yesterday and it was not the Atlantic or the Pacific but the Indian, TIA.
We are adjusting well to the 7 hours time change. We went to bed at a normal time and got up at our normal time. We will see how the day goes. We have gotten settled in at my cousin’s home in Durban. This is our home for the next 4 weeks.
I have my first teaching session this evening and will be teach Ecclesiastes and tomorrow evening I will be teaching Titus. It will be interesting because I will teaching with a translator.
Tomorrow I should post pictures. There is not much exciting right now because we are a typical suburban home right now.
