Binh Quoi Village

When Belinda was in Ho Chi Minh I wanted to immediately get out of Ho Chi Minh and go to Mui Ne.  However, Belinda wanted to experience the city and get a feel for what a typical week might be for me.

The Teacher Chronicles

I will be totally honest. When I made the decision to teach English abroad the thought of 'teaching' never crossed my mind. It sounds silly, but I'm being serious.

While in Cambodia completing my TESOL training there were several … Continue reading The Teacher Chronicles

Two Days Of Fun

Too many districts. Two Days. Plus Teaching. May the odds be ever in your favor.        The morning after I arrived in Ho Chi Minh City, I went to lunch with the other Language Corps teachers to discover that HARDWELL (I love Hardwell. We share the same birthday. And I love his hair color) had DJ'd in … Continue reading Two Days Of Fun

Supa Fresh

The lord threw me a bone by placing organic down the street.  Between a mini Vietnamese style liquor store is a beautiful, bright green grocery store called Organica. How did I discover this place? Technically, Megan did.  One of the many days we were being rained on during our 3pm walk home Megan says, "OMG … Continue reading Supa Fresh
