Planning our teaching projects

Quote: “Leap and the Net will appear” John Burroughs

Pleasantly full, a little tired and looking forward to tomorrow. All our days should end like our first full team experience in Vietnam.

We set goals, toured the Hoan Kiem Lake and brainstormed wonderful ideas in preparation for our first day at the school. Our five person group works well together, so far, and we promise to be an effective teaching force. Everyone brought interesting possible contributions, ranging from Warren’s markers to Ruth’s find-a-word books. We were grateful for Mary’s practical teaching expertise and Toni’s wise observations as we put together a possible lesson plan.

This is the most prepared—or, at least, planned-out—Global Volunteer team I’ve ever served with, and I’m grateful.

· Miscellaneous highlights I don’t want to forget:
· The smell of incense at the Buddhist shrine.
· Seeing the beautiful bride allow herself to be arranged for pictures.
· Lunch at Disco Avalon.
· Our incredible dinner at the beautiful Green Tangerine.
