Weekly Photo Challenge: Scale (Touching Bismarck)

A submission to this week’s photo challenge. A juxtaposition of scale shows me propping up Bismarck Rocks , the best known landmark of Mwanza.

12 Months Ago Today: Interview

It’s hard to believe that exactly 12 months ago I was preparing for an interview for a job at Isamilo School in Mwanza. Having filled in an application form on the Monday I scheduled a Skype interview for 2pm GMT (5pm Local). I was very nervous at the time but warmed to my interviewers and went with the flow. The scary thing was keeping it secret from everyone else (other than my Network Technician who helped with the setup and the cover co-ordinator who needed to keep me off cover. I arranged to be in the Lower School team room well away from the rest of my team at upper school or in Maths. The best laid plans were scuppered by an unscheduled interruption but thankfully the interview was not unduly disturbed but I imagine my colleague wondered what on earth was happening. After 40 mins in which our Skype call held up without interruption I was told that I would be informed after the weekend. In truth I had to wait less than a day, of which tomorrow.
In those pre-blog days some the events are summarised in my earliest posting – Wow!

Even now looking back a year there is still a sense of Wow!
