I left Japan on 29th June and a week just has passed since I came to Vientiane, Laos. But I still don't feel I'm living in Laos yet. Though It is much hotter here than I have expected and sweating a lot everyday, I'm doing fine so far.
I came to Laos to work as a JICA volunteer. From this Monday to the end of July, I will live in a dormitory of JICA with other volunteers and continue to study Lao language at a language school in Vientiane. After that, I'm going to work for Trade Union of Laos, a governmental organization for workers, as an English instructor for 2 years. I will have English classes for the members of the organization.
I'm not sure what I can do or imagine what this 2 years will be like. To be honest, I'm little uneasy about unexpectabl future, but I also have great hopes toward new experiences in this country. I know It's only a week, but I've already fell in love with Laos! :) I will write about the life in Laos and my work in my blog in both Japanese and English.
