Pay Day

On Tuesday I got paid. After tax I made four hundred and ninety-three lats (roughly six hundred and thirty euro, or the wrong side of six hundred quid). It wasn't a surprise. The cost of living was the first thing I asked about in the interview. "That's what everyone asks," the Director of Studies laughed. "Let's just say no-one gets rich teaching in Latvia."

Or anywhere else, he might have added.
