Jan 27, 2010 - Could it be Dengue Fever?
My time in Tuy Hoa has quickly come to and end - 1 day sooner than it was supposed to. But I will get to that in a minute. First, I will update you on this week. Monday morning, since I didn't have school, I was able to have Nguyen check my translations and send the sign language book off to the printers. It was finished by that evening and turned out great! The kids at school where very excited when I told them that afternoon. Monday night I taught Shae's class at Home of Affection since she was feeling sick. Home of Affection is a...Jump to full entry
Jan 21, 2010 - Cricket(s) anyone?
When I last left off I was sitting in the hotel lobby in Nha Trang wasting time until my overnight train. After I finished updating all of you I headed off to find something to eat since who knew when my next meal would be. I sat down at a nice little restaurant, got some pineapple fried rice and listened to Madonna's "Immaculate Collection" that the restaurant had a repeat. Halfway through my dinner some other people came into the restaurant and invited me to sit with them. They were two Australians and one British person. They were really...Jump to full entry
Jan 14, 2010 - Lucky Vagina
The last couple days at the Disabled School have been going amazingly well. The kids are all super excited when I arrive and are the most attentive students I have ever taught. I have been doing 3-4 classes a day for all different ages and sign levels. One of the classes is really advanced and catches on soooo fast.

They are also very interested in learning the different signs and...Jump to full entry
Jan 12, 2010 - The Loophole
After a 9+ hour car ride yesterday, mostly down Highway 1, we arrived in Tuy Hoa. I sat in back so I wouldn't be as aware as to what was headed my way. Apart from the music, the trip was pretty uneventful. The ride started out with some Vietnamese pop music, and later changed to a really scratched copy of Barry Manilow that continuously skipped! Within a short amount of time I had my ipod on. Mr Viet, our program director took us to dinner at this little place along the side of the road right on the sea. It had really fresh sea food that...Jump to full entry
Jan 25, 2008 - The Hills are alive with the sound of swearing...
...And yes it is I. This morning found us clambering into the bus not to early and driving for about 20 minutes to go and visit the pagoda in Nha Trang that is one of the earliest temples belonging to the Cham people. It was built in the 800's and was Hindu. In the 1200s is when the Vietnamese through marriage came to rule this part of the country. Onto the bus and we drive for about an hour to the head of the Dai Lanh pendinsula. It was an 18km ride down this wonderful stretch of road with the sea on either side, sand sweeping across the...Jump to full entry
