A Typical Week in Darwin

Well this week was a hot one! It was above 100 degrees at least 3 days with the humidity, but it was still a good one. I am getting used to the heat, but that does not mean I am enjoying the amount of sweat I am producing. I taught all week once again, and it went really well! My teacher has said I have already earned 3 A's! haha I am happy with that :) Now that the last two weeks are starting my teacher said that my lessons can be very laid back. I am excited to have some fun with the students while still trying to accomplish some educational goals.

Other than teaching this week, I did not do much. We enjoyed a lot of great food once again, and I started to work out. I am trying to do some sort of work out each day. I think the nice weather has motivated me to try and be active! It is hard in this heat, but I am trying to find ways to make it work! Other than that this week has been pretty standard.

This weekend we went to the market, museum, casino, and the wave pool! It was a really great day, and we got a lot of sun! Luckily my slight burn yesterday turned to a tan now! The museum was very nice since it was air conditioned, and we were able to see a lot of nice art and exhibits. We saw the huge crocodile Sweetheart that had to be captured because he was attacking too many people. Now they have it on display in the museum. It was a nice break to walk around there. We then walked to the casino, which we ended up getting kicked out of. haha We didn't have our passports so they tracked us down at the slots and said we had to leave. We were surprised, but then we just laughed and left. After that we went and enjoyed the public wave pool. It was so nice to relax in the water in the waves. It was the perfect end to a hot day!

Today is Sunday roast once again. Last week was delicious as always, and this week I am looking forward to the same delicious food! I am excited for Elissa to get to experience the Sunday roast the weekend she is in Darwin! Elissa comes in 1 and 1/2 weeks! Next Wednesday :) I am counting down to seeing her! I think traveling with her will be the perfect end to a GREAT trip. I am going to miss Darwin a lot! Especially my host family! They are so amazing, it will be hard to leave!

I hope everyone is doing well in the states though! Keep safe!


A beautiful sunset :)
