This is a few weeks old, but James is in California!
His first area is in Palmdale, California. It is located in north Los Angeles county, separated from LA by the San Gabriel mountain range.
He hasn't said much about it (again, not a man of many words) but he is enjoying the heat, although he does miss the snow. He has said that it is harder to find Spanish families to teach than he anticipated, but I have a feeling he will settle in quite nicely.
