Merry/Happy Christmas everyone! I can't believe how long it's been since we've posted anything. With a dial-up connection, it's often a more enticing option to bang my head against the wall.
We've been in Denver almost two months now and are certified ESL teachers having completed our CELTA course on Dec 3rd. I won't bore you with the details, just suffice it to say that not even the neighbours knew we were here as we were in class from 9am-6pm and had 5 hours of homework every night. Since then, we've been leading a conversational English class with three Korean students from our CELTA course - they've been nice enough to put up with us every afternoon for several hours.
I wish we could give you more details about where we're going to end up next year, but unfortunately the visa process is a bit more difficult when you're A) not married to someone from the same country. B) not living in your 'home' country. C) formerly known as 'Indian' and D) having to rely on government systems that shut down throughout December and January.
We do know that we'll be in NZ on the 8th of Jan until starting our new jobs as teachers in some Asian country in February.
Let's take a vote: were do you think we should go? South Korea, Taiwan or Vietnam? Let's hear your reasons (and getting rid of us isn't a valid one!) and you get extra points if you promise to visit!
