Today we got our first good look at our new school, the International School of Dhaka. We were picked up from our apartment at around 8:30am and picked up other new staff on the route to school. The rivers are still swollen and so the driver had to go an alternate route to bypass the flooded roads.

The school is an oasis. It really is. The pictures below show just how great the insides are. We will add pictures of the outside later.

Today was a lot of house keeping: a tour of the school, mobile phone sim cards, salary advances, a meet and greet with the new director.

After school we had a dinner with all the new staff at a lovely Indian restaurant. Every one is really cool, no great egos or wankers which is such a relief!

In between the cafeteria and the elementary wing are these beautiful, lush green gardens for the kids to sit in.

Another great aspect to the gardens.
