When we returned back to our school about 10 days ago, everyone was so happy to see us. Many teachers have come to say they are sorry and spend time with me. It must be in Tanzanian fashion to give food when someone is sick because in my first week home, we have been showered with food as shown below:
Day 2 home: 6 eggs from the civics teacher and 4 pears from our neighbors
Day 3: from 6 eggs to 16
A basin of potatoes
In addition to these, we also got four more pears and 2 oranges. The welcoming home was very good and there is so much support from my school. I am still not teaching but am glad to be within range of my school and colleagues.
