Late to the Dance
I know I'm a little late to the dance here. But I have just finally had time to sit down and read your blogs. I am in awe. Gregory and I are planning to come to Vietnam in February. We may follow in these footsteps. Most definitiely we will come to see you. Who would have thought? Our trip is inspired by your blog. All my best, Chris

Bravo
HI Nancy and Joe Bravo to you both. for putting yourselves on the line to immerse yourselves in culture. and graduating from your lanquage course. I have always been impressed and humbled when I have patients who are immigrants. It take an enormous amount of courage to learn a foreign lanquage and adapt to a new culture. You both look great. The heat and hummidity would absolutely be a challenge. I have loved following your journey. Take care of yourselves. Love Pam Culig

travels
Hey guys -- great stuff ... and congrats on finishing the course and getting jobs. BTW, according to the LA Times, Viet Nam is a great place to wait out the recession. (http://travel.latimes.com/articles/la-tr-vietnam13-2009sep13) Keep on keepin' on. kc

Hearty Congrats to you Both!
Dear Joe and Nancy, What a month of study! So happy that you made it through. You both look so exhilarated and happy in all the photos. It makes me smile - It's contagious! I'm just delighted that you're doing so well, developing good friendships, and delving deeper into the heart of VN. Stay well. Are you seeing an acupuncturist/herbalist? Love and hugs, Carole P.S. Are you staying in Hanoi for the remainder of your trip?

Nancy and Joe, I'm glad you're both doing so well, making many friends and settling in. It looks like a fantastic trip, and I know you're both enjoying your teaching experiences. I'm jealous of all the good food too! RP

Kudos to you both
Hi Nancy and Joe, Wow!!! I am once again entertained... wowed.... and inspired... by your adventure. You write so well Nancy and the photos make it all so real.. Thank you for sharing this... I just love it... looking forward to you teaching me some cooking when you get back... if you ever want to... It will be a real culture shock to come back to the states, and to all of us, who haven't done much but the same old... same old... I am loving my work at UNM and still my school...I am grateful to be a 61 year old art teacher, with "too much work" in this economy. I am starting an after school Shalom Club with older students... we are trying to find homes for our Peace Quilts. We have joined Peace Pals and they will match us to kids from around the world to be pen pals with, and hopefully find a home in several different countries for the quilts... Maybe you can help us get one to Vietnam. We also would be open to a couple of young 4/5th graders who want to be pen pals... maybe you could translate? So my questions are this... Would you be willing to help us with this? Do you know of any child who might be an orphan, or suffering a childhood illness, or who would be interested in becoming a Peacemaker in their lives, and a friend to one of my students? We will send a quilt to them... you could document it for us with photo's... Please e-mail me directly to respond... nbrady@unm.edu The gang had a great time in Pagosa and you were missed... I didn't make it this year... family emergency had me quite stressed.. decided to stay home and rest... and yes.. it did rain buckets... Love Nancy

pretty different from UNH Practicum
Dear Nancy and Joe, Thank you for sharing your travel log. Nancy, your teachng training is quite different from the UNH Psychology Teaching Practicum. It sounds much better. Maybe we should send our graduate students to the same program to improve their teaching. I am envious of your trip! Enjoy! Ellen

Thanks again
Thanks for you most recent posting. it's been great to follow your adventures. Your involvement with locals sets you apart - in a very good way - from so many tourists. Other people could learn from you, and it would improve world relations. Keep it up!!

Great Phase II Transistion Report
Very nice pad you found! Interesting to hear about the intensive training. I would not have guessed that it would be so rigorous! I think it's great that you are finding local people to socialize with. I know it can be lots of effort to interact with language barriers, but so incredibly rewarding in the long run. WSG continues to have fine gatherings. What an amazing group of women. We miss you! Love, Catherine
