I took a leave of absence from my job and moved — temporarily — to India about a week ago to volunteer as an English teacher. Here are three of my kindergarten students during a lunch break last Friday. And the link to my blog, in case you want to follow along with my adventure: http://blog.mysanantonio.com/rickshawchronicles/

Introduction
I usually live in San Antonio with my husband. At the moment, however, I live in a convent in Bangalore. I teach local kids how to speak English — and sometimes how to dance to Euro-pop.
