Hello from Kottayam!


Rosie and I arrived safely at Trivandrum airport 4 days ago, then had a 5 hour car journey to the district of Kottayam where we are staying in a rural area called Areeparambu in a guest house. Everyone here is so kind and happy to help with anything. We had a real culture shock with the driving on the Indian roads but eventually arrived in the beautiful oasis of calm where we will live for the next 2 months! We are living next to a children's home (The Precious Children International Village), just a kilometre from the ACCM school where we are teaching. Last night we visited the children before dinner and played games with them including their version of 'duck, duck, goose', which was really fun. We don't start teaching until Tuesday and when we do it will be 18-21 year-olds learning their BMus course where we will be teaching them Ear Training, Music Theory, Composition, History and Practical Piano. In the mean time we have lots of lesson planning to be getting on with!

We will update you soon once teaching has started,
