Wow, is there anything better than the first day of school!? Whatever struggles I'm having adapting to life in Mongolia, this first day has been lovely. New faces, new students, but the same excitement as a year full of possibilities begins anew. Students greet each other with hugs and cries of excitement after a summer apart; new students hang nervously on the fringe, but quickly absorb into the group. And, of course, I have the best job in the school.
