Wednesday was the official starting day with the IJM Thailand Field Office.
But back to work. I've included a few pictures of the office I share with the IJM attorney, Rit.
Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday took me back to school. For these first few weeks, I will devote myself to being a student of Thai, Thai law, and Thai coffee.
The IJM Thailand staff has been very gracious, including their spouses. When I went to get in the car to go home on Friday, I opened the door on the right and almost sat on the driver, Pi Mim's husband. Each person has taken the time to help me every step of the way -- whether work-related or life-related.
So far, I have immersed myself into a large document about the history and process of citizenship in Thailand, courtesy of UNESCO. Next up are more documents and procedural outlines of citizenship law and then onto criminal law, as we prepare the Child Sexual Abuse pilot program.
