Today we have postgradueted cours in ICT to use Smartboards. It is the first smartboard at college. All teachers of the college are together and they have to to it. On the mixed computers they work with Win XP, Office 2003 and other software. The computers need a lot of time to work. And it seems to be normal, that electricitie stops sometimes a day. Time for a brake! Twice a day we will have "teatime". At 11am and at 6pm. All teachers meet together in the pause in the teachers staff room to get tea and bread together, have smalltalks and professional discussions about the college and the students.
To do something against the heat (it is about 30º) we learned to make all things more slowely, special walking very slow. It is the opposite of walking in our countries, where it is almost fast, hectically. Faster, higher, getting more and more. Live in Kenia goes slowely. They enjoy this and are laughing often. Seems they are satisfied and lucky all the time.
The hospitality is very perfect. All the time different teachers are with and around us. To discuss, explain, integrate in their classes ... Pupils can ask a lot about academical and school sytems in austria, also about our culture and our lifestyle, family and so on. We are looking in great and astonished eyes. They are often not able to understand how we live. But it is the same for us.
