Khup, Greetings from Bangkok. Leslie & I arrived safely
& have been spending the last 12 days moving in.
We have our own phone line as of today, so I am sending off
this short e-mail to let you know we are doing well.
been intense getting acclimated to such a foreign culture
while at the same time preparing to become teachers for the
first time. Leslie just completed a week of training with
a Thai professor whose expertise is in Christian Montessori.
I attend a seminar next week for teaching math, science, &
is hard to describe, but over the next few years (God willing)
I will try to do it justice. We are going to catch a bus
tomorrow for Ban Phe where we hope to catch a ferry or fishing
boat to Ko Samet. It is an island which is part of the Thai
national park system. For 120 baht ($3.00) a bus will
take you the three hours to Ban Phe. On Ko Samet, for $12.00/night
you can stay in a bungalow on the beach. It is basically a
grass hut with a mattress & mosquito netting but sounds
like the Ritz Carlton to us.
is so crowded & polluted, any chance we have to get out
of the city, well take it. Other than a break in early
May we work straight thru to Oct. We hope you all find the
time to drop us a line now & again & we will do the
same. I pray you are all doing well.
