Vietnam: Saigon Update

Happy New Year- 2009!

Currently I am working at an English language school a couple times a week and will soon be working at another language school and  public school during the day. I am slowly getting things pulled together but for now I  have a lot of free time.

Right now I have a class of young kids on Saturday and Sunday mornings and it is painful- so noisy, so early. I came over here with the intentions of teaching kids but that sure has turned around. Young adults (college students) are so much more interesting and less out of control.

I have now become more mobil here. A couple days ago when I was on the back of a motorbike taxi it hit me, I am tired of taking taxis around the city and having to explain everyday to a person who does not speak English where I live. So I did something about it. I am now renting a motorbike. It is great and the traffic is not so scary once you are driving.

Last week another English teacher, Ashley from Colorado, moved into our fifth bedroom so it has been fun having her around.
