That part about Tuesday or Wednesday? Nope. It’s Thursday. This Thursday. This first-day-of-the-new-school-year Thursday. The day after tomorrow, August 2, 2018, I will become Peruvian. I offer apologies to my students and colleagues for my absence but I do not dare ask to go on a different day and put at risk this ten month odyssey; in 25 years of teaching I have never missed the first day.
I will bring a voucher from the Banco de la Nación for S/. 15.80 (that’s about $5.00), Form F002, and my ID card. I will arrive before the 10:00 AM ceremony in formal attire (coat and tie?) with my one guest, my wife, and go to windows 38 and 39 in Room 5 on the first floor (those are the details from the email that I received).
Watch for pictures in just a few days! Yep, I’m pretty excited.
