Liam is attending a small private school called Potters Academy. We pay a small fee, and for that fee we get some individual attention. We went directly to the administration office and met the receptionist and then soon after Mr. Wambua, the Director, and his Vice, whose name I can't remember. Mr. Wambua and I had been in email communication since January and Michael of course had met him a couple of times. He was very sweet, giving both of us a hug. He then invited us into his office and after checking about our fee payment, he told us about how the school is structured, the schedule, the after class activities (this is from 4-5 which is why the day is so long) and promised that Liam would have a "strong student" as a buddy for the first week to show him the ropes. I had several questions but am learning quickly about how to behave in a heirarchical society so I sat quietly until he was finished and asked if we had any questions. He was very welcoming and after asking a few more questions, about lunchtime and breaks, etc, I felt like I'd better go and let Liam make his way. So I thanked him for the warm welcome and departed, turning immediately the wrong way out of the school BUT after a few paces figured it out and turned around to make the trek home. The roads all sort of looked the same to me at that point but now , after 4 days, I am able to make my way more easily.
