Frying Pan and Fire

Ok so things weren’t going so well in Casablanca.

Decision made – move on.

New challenges and all that sort of thing. I was about to fly back to the UK and regroup, then an old friend contacted me.

“Do you still teach Physics?”

“If I need to.”

“I just had a Physics teacher quit at my school, send me your CV.”


Two days later, interviewed and a job offer came. Cool, a steady income, cash flow, while building everything else.

Covid meant travel restrictions and special permission to travel from the government. It’s the Brave New World. No real problem.

After a few weeks teaching remotely, with a 3 hour time lag (0430 for me was 0730 for them), my permission letter came, which meant book a flight, organise a Covid test and time to move. My flight was booked for 27th September.

Delayed at Casablanca, over permission to fly. Same issue in Istanbul. However I did finally arrive early morning, 28th September.

In Baku.


Nobody told me there was a war!

I have been a teacher all my life. That doesn't just mean in School! I taught my brothers to ride bikes and go camping in the mountains. I taught Football, Cricket, Squash, Sailing, Climbing and Karate. In BNI I became the Education Coordinator. With my Property Business I laid on Investment Seminars. I taught my sons to Fish for Carp. And I still teach Maths and Physics to students who want to go to University to study Medicine or Engineering. Now I am teaching people the things I am learning online.
