On Monday, we began orientation along with Suchita (from India, receiving 3yr finance training here in London), Linda (Dutch, leaving for a 1yr physiotherapist internship in India), Margretha (Dutch, personal assistant in the Dutch National Council offices), and Ranjit (works in community development in Dehli offices).
We went out on Tuesday evening to Central London, walked about Piccadilly Circus and ate at a mexican restuarant. It was the first time to eat mexican food for many of them, except for myself and a Jenny, who works in HR and is from Tegucigalpa, Honduras. The cheese was something more european, so nachos were a bit "different". The picture below includes (left to right) Joanna, who also works in the TLM HR department, in the foreground and then Jenny, Margretha, Ranjit and Suchita.
Sorry, I do not have pictures of the actual training times. Too busy then paying attention. :) I will probably be moving to the student quarters at the college this weekend. Lectures begin bright and early Monday morning. The course will end on Dec 1, after which I will then fly to Kathmandu for language school, which will definitely be a longterm prayer topic.
