(CELTA) D.O.N.E. Woo-HOO! (and some luscious travel plans…)
Just a quick one here to celebrate the E.N.D. of my CELTA course, and drop a few pics. Can’t even describe what it feels like to be fancy-free w/ time to take pics, and just relax.
Then again, already I have LOTS of plans. Already have my bus ticket to Dalat (where I hope to settle soon) – 6 hrs. / $10 – I leave at 11am Sunday morning, for 3 nights in Dalat – just enough time to give it a good look-see, then head back here to HCMC for…

Looks like I can fly to Kuala Lumpur for less than $200, then just $79 and a hop, skip ‘n a jump across the Malacca Strait from KL to Medan in northern Sumatra, Indonesia.
And meanwhile… Today was our FINAL day of the CELTA and we spent the morning having a party with all our students. Here’s a peek at some of the fun:
