I've been asked to speak at a TESOL College tonight about my experiences in China so I have dragged out my photo album, and a book about Yuexiu and another about Shaoxing.
I will only speak for 10 minutes and then answer questions about it. Should be fun.
I am also speaking informally with another English teacher who is keen to go to China too - so I may even get to recruit some. Maybe.
I keep saying that this coming trip to China is my "swan song" and next time I will try another country to teach, but I do have a passion for China and it will be hard to say "never" - but I doubt I will teach there. A long tour would be good though.
I'm already getting excited about going back - when I looked through my photo album I thought of the fresh vegetables, the food in the restaurants and the extra ordinary places I visited.
It won't be long now.
