I am staying with a friend a little bit further outside at the Westlake. My translator Lan helped me to organize a bus ticket for the full month of May - the application form was of course in Vietnamese and I couldn't understand a word ;)
So nice to have somebody local here which I can meet on a regular base. I already got a homemade vietnamese meal and ate a few baguettes and a lot of pineapples :)
Will meet all the other teachers tonight for dinner for the first time and tomorrow my course is starting for 4 weeks. I am excited, nervous and really looking forward to it!
Christine ( where I am staying right now) brought me out on Friday and yesterday to meet some other friends of hers. Very good to get to know people: Japanese, British, Australian, American's, Indians etc. - feels a little bit like in Dublin at the beginning.
Even met a teacher who was teaching for the Apollo Institute previously and where I will start tomorrow. He said there are a lot of teaching opportunities here and I should also look at his company he is working with now. So fingers crossed everything goes well, I hopefully can start to teach soon :)
