First Day of Class

First some photos to go with Josh's post seeing as they are all on my computer:

Our first taste of ice cream from a small chain called Fredo. Not a very flattering picture, but mine was strawberry with dairy!! Best day every!!

This one is for Mia. A man playing what might be called classical guitar WITH a pedal!

The famous hand painter of famous music artists.

Some men who were actually playing Klezmer music and started in on Fiddler on the Roof as we walked away.

Now that you've seen some pictures from Sunday, I can talk about my first day of class! My class was only a subway ride away, but because it was a holiday today I think it took a little longer than normal. We started at 9:30 today and went till 1pm, but normally it will be from 10-5 on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. On Thursday and Friday class is from 10 till 1 and then we come back to teach a lesson for one hour either at 5, 6, 7, or 8. My teacher is young and very nice and the students are cool too. Two are older men and one an older woman, but most are young people like me who are trying to make some monetary gains while abroad and who graduated and had nothing to do. I already have to give a lesson this Friday and Saturday which is kind of scary!!! But I guess it’s best to just dive in.

Tonight we had dinner at what is so far my favorite restaurant and the Titanic is on now!! But it’s off to bed soon because I have to wake up early tomorrow!
Hope everyone is doing well at home!
