While I am determining if I will go back to China in 2011 - I've been helping another lady with her C/V etc to prepare for an application to China. And my friend in China has come down with Bell's Palsy. The latter is of concern as it is not easy to feel confident with medical treatment in China. Mainly language and culture, and their insistence on their own style of medicine - which differs from ours.
I guess I also have to consider that she (for whom I am house sitting) will need to come back to Australia - and I really will be of "no fixed abode".
It is a reminder to anyone taking on an ESL role to have Travel/Medical Insurance.
Meanwhile, back in Oz, I am preparing to go to Adelaide to see my folks. I love Adelaide, my home city, but it is too cold to live there, although IF I did, I'd install reverse cycle airconditioning.
