A setback...

With the end of daylight savings time, came the end of our SKYPE chats. If you remember, cutbacks due to problems in the economy shortened the school day in Bahia. Now that the time difference is 3 hours instead of 2, our students will not be in school at the same time.

We will continue to blog, work on our book, use TappedIn, and e-mail.

Speaking of e-mail, my students have run into problems figuring out what holiday in Brasil would be closest to some of our celebrations. So I told them to e-mail their other teacher and ask. Their delight at receiving e-mail directly to them from Tyrone was surprising. I don't believe they thought he would really write to just one person. They couldn't wait to share with their classmates.
