My [redacted] Journey

A teacher's search for inner peace.

From the Clothing Drive to the Corniche

Dear Readers,

Today’s post is brought to you by the letter “C”.  Today is the third post in the A to Z Challenge hosted by the blog Flickr.  I am playing catch-up; the challenge began July 8 and a new letter is introduced once a week on Tuesday.  I will be posting at least once a day until I can catch-up.  Should you want to read posts “A” or “B”, just click on the letter and I’ll take you there.

In the meantime, I did not intend to have a running theme throughout my alphabet challenge, however, it seems as though that is where I am headed.  So dear Readers, sit back, kick your shoes off, read, and enjoy.


One of the activities I helped coordinate with one of my classes while teaching at Amrah Bint was a clothing drive.  I’ll let the pictures tell the story.


Corniche Road in Abu Dhabi boasts 8 kilometers of well-manicured waterfront.  It is different from the beaches in the U.S. in that there are few locals.  Although, there is a family area, separate from the public area and away from the prying eyes of the tourists.



Well dear Readers, I am beginning to reach conclusions about my time in the Middle East.  Simply writing these three posts (A, B, C) has helped tremendously in my quest to debrief and decompress.  I am not quite ready to write about my conclusions at this point.  However, once I have  concrete conclusions, you, dear Readers, will be the first to know.  Peace, ~v.
