It's very new and modern, with wide roads, high office- and appartment buildings and hotels. They build roads, Houses, they transport, buy and sell, bricks, wood, toilets, lambs, food, animals, pipes, and whatnot. Please kindly excuse Steve's, Arno's and my playing around with the war-equipment. Thank you so much for Your interest - it was a lot of fun putting the stuff online knowing, that there were people out there actually interested in reading it. That goes well, although I really have to spend time planning the classes so that the students learn something and it's fun at the same time.
The climate is refreshingly cool, which we all really appreciated after weeks of heat in Hanoi. Up to now I'm not hearing complaints but I'll see how it goes. Anyway good night and cu soon. Ich möchte hiermit Euch allen für Euer Interesse danken. On the way to Ba Vi, we passed a district at the outskirts of Hanoi, that I hadn't seen before. Last weekend we were in Halong Bay.
Although the site is quite touristy, as soon as you're on one of the boats heading towards the bay, it's just beautiful. Vielleicht stelle ich hier bald einen letzten Reisebericht rein. Now I'm feeling a bit tired and I'm sitting here with Stefan and Arno, the guys from the Netherlands, in front of a fan at our laptops. There will be a change in my blog.
Ich habe 2,5 Monate tolle Monate hinter mir und ich bin froh, dass ich ein paar Eindrücke mit Euch teilen konnte. Es hat viel Spaß gemacht, die Infos reinzustellen, weil ich wusste da waren wirklich Leute da draußen, die es interessiert hat ; Dankeschön! I can really say that I have got used to living here. There are rivers, waterfalls, ricefields and a rich traditional culture stemming from the 5 ethnic minority groups that live there and still produce many of their beautiful multicolered textiles. I hope I will see many of my new friends again, in the future. In ihr kommt der Verdacht auf, dass Marie in illegale Adoptionen verwickelt sein könnte.
I've decided to write in english from now. It's all surrounded by mountains and trees and people come there, bring food and drinks and spend a whole day. It's about our visit to the War Museum. The other one is about the Museum of Ethnology, which we visited today.
I guess that's genetic with boys. This is also what we did. Much to the enjoyment of the local tourist industry. It has about 3000 islands, only 300 of which have a name. Noch benommen bricht sie auf, um Danh und ihre Zwillingschwester zu finden. Check back in 2 weeks to find if I managed : All the best to you, so long and thanks for all the fish - Yours David Deutsche Version: Liebe Freunde und Familie, ich bin glücklich und gesund wieder in Deutschland angekommen.
The second day we hiked even more, a few of us I amongst them got severely sunburnt, but the day was still marvellous. . We just watched Golden Eye a pirated Chinese copy in english, good quality though and had dinner at the Italian place. It mainly consisted of a waterfall and a stream of water running down like terasses with large pools where people swim and children play. We watched Die Hard 4. Today I finished Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
We did Kajaking, swam at one of the islands beaches and went into a cave. Although we had to endure feeling like a tourist, normally pleasing our ego's with the idea that we - as volunteers - are more local and integrated. Still, sometimes I feel that I'm just no professional phonetics teacher. I still get a lot of positive feedback.
Anyway, work's still nice and it's great being together with my housemates. I'm responsible for a project in a disabled center, where short term volunteers 2 weeks join disabled children in producing handicrafts liken textile flowers for sale. One is about Halong Bay on request of Katjes. Comments had been voiced that after an overwhelming start in this respect, beautiful Asian females were increasingly replaced by animal intestins and the like. Dear friends, dear family I have arrived happily and safely in Germany.
