[Bali life] Not usual one day as

A lot has happened in the past 24 hours, so here's a ramble about my day.

Yesterday I had a series of meetings for a European Union project from 8pm until almost midnight, after which I managed to write a blog and go to bed.

I woke up at 5 am, took the kids surfing and managed to save my younger son and his battered surfboard when he cut the leash cord on the surfboard. In the midst of this flurry of activity, after dropping the younger children off at school, I took the older children to the high school for their entrance interview and then I went to the Green School.

Finally, after almost two years, we signed a contract with the Green School. I feel a certain amount of pressure, but good pressure, because there are benchmarks that we need and want to achieve in the next six months. We will be setting up a satellite office here, where I or some of my staff members will be based. We will not only work together on sustainability education, but we will also be more actively involved in my research projects and the introduction of biogas.

After that, we talked with the teachers about new projects that might be possible, and I returned to Changu to do an online sustainability class for Clark Memorial High School in Japan.

My older son is graduating from Montessori, where he has been since primary school, and we met his classmates for the last time on the beach. He hasn't decided where he will go to high school yet, but it's nice to know he has somewhere to go.

And that's how I ended my day. If it weren't for the fact that today is Friday, it would have been a very physically and mentally full day. I'll write more about the Green School and what we're going to do in the future another time. I'm exhausted today, so I'm off to bed.
