Hello! My name is Vladi!

By Vladimir, Co-Director, IHF Jakarta

Hello all First let me introduce myself… My name is Vladimir and I have been in IHF Jakarta for a few months now, doing and sometimes messing up the tasks of a Co-Director. Overall it has been an honour to see that I have been accepted straightaway by everyone, especially the kids. Yeah, they do test you, but in a very cute and non-malicious way. So far no one has thrown anything at me or stuck a gum on my chair, even though I maybe deserve it sometimes. Teaching is definitely great fun, once you get it right.

A little update: okay, so we have a new volunteer from the UK. Hello Heidi! She’s 19 and very sweet. Heidi is a vegetarian and a big animal lover, which!

Time here runs crazy fast. Almost as fast as a kid on a sugar cane tea, down the stairs, after their last class for the day, thinking that the lady selling  more sweets is waiting outside. Incredible thing to see.

Personally, I am having fun, sweating and getting lost. All you need from life, right?!

I am trying to visit a different place every weekend. So far I was lucky to experience a variety from a heart of monkeys on the side of the road (close to the center of Jakarta) to kites looking over their little masters – some children from the rice fields. I wonder what’s next.
