Looks like I won't be able to do any traveling this summer. The director of the English school where I teach has "discouraged" teachers from taking time off since things are so busy at the school.
So I'm stuck.
I guess I will have to sit back & relax for a while, & let Vietnam do what she will with me. I have lots of free time to study a little Vietnamese, keep up with my Chinese studies, watch my Spanish-language DVD's, start practicing the tin whistle, & generally laze around. Cool things do pop up here & there, like the trip to the countryside on Sunday & our romp in the water park on Wednesday.
But it looks like I'll have to wait until the fall to do some traveling around Asia.
