We made it to our Winter Break! Our school completed 10 weeks of on campus learning on Friday, December 18. As always, it was a busy finish to the calendar year and I am looking forward to more time with my family during the break. We are nearing the winter solstice and I took the photo below while on front gate duty. As the director of the school, often I am out and about in the mornings, greeting students, parents and employees. The sun rises around 7:45 AM and I am usually out near 8:00 AM . The sun comes up while I am on the street in front of the school. It has been a cold winter so far with temperatures hovering around 0C daily. Next week we’ll have a high of 7C and daily lows around -3C.
I took Obi for a walk last night along a side canal and around some of the big apartment complexes near the airport. I noticed some new restaurants and upscale shops on one of the streets. The growth of economic development of Tashkent is amazing. I am looking forward to recharging my body and mind and welcoming 2021!
