Happy Thanksgiving!

Well we are drawing close to another Thanksgiving - outside, there is snow on the The Grand and Mt. Moran... inside my apartment, turkey, stuffing and pie making supplies lay on the counter waiting for me to start making my last Thanksgiving meal in the Tetons. You see, the year round accounting functions for all accounting personnel is being moved to Vail. This simply means that come the last of January 2009, I won't be working here any more. Makes me wonder where I'll be next… Continue

The Employee Journey -- pt 1. A 2009 Outlook

I am going to cover every step I can think of, from your first thought of seasonal employment to your first day of work and beyond.

My adventure is starting!

Just wanted to post here quickly that my adventure is finally starting. I am typing this in the computer room of the Grand Canyon International Hostel in Flagstaff, Arizona, where I am spending the night. Tomorrow at eight am I catch a shuttle up to the Grand Canyon where I process through HR and get assigned housing etc and begin my adventure up by the big hole in the ground. So glad was I to get out of Phoenix this morning, as the shuttle starting climbing altitude as we left the Phoenix… Continue

Week 8 in Nepal: Pokhara, Broken Axle, Puja Room, Shiva Cave and Sitting Gufa

Wow! Where do I begin? I have just returned from such an incredible experience….I hope that I will be able to do it justice. We left last Tuesday, traveling by bus from Pokhara to Sangye, where Bel’s best friend lives. We hired a bus to take us instead of hopping on the bus that makes that run several times a day. We had way too many things to take to make that an option. Bishnu and Babita literally took their entire kitchen with them to do the cooking…two burner propane stove, huge gas… Continue

TEACHING ENGLISH OVERSEAS: Why? How? Where? What?

After this past week of teaching Chinese students interrogative phrases, how could I come up with anything else as a title?

Coolworks recently posted an ad for English teachers wanted in China. This ad is from a school I’m currently working with, and it inspired me to write this general blog about teaching English overseas.

WHY: The reasons to do this kind of work are almost as varied as the people doing it. Personally, I have always been attracted to situations that combine… Continue

Week Seven in Nepal: Sunrise, Peace Pagoda, Gufa, Steaming Buffalo Milk & the Millet Dance

The weather continues to be quite pleasant, with clear mountain views that linger throughout the day. Usually by this time, the mountains cloud over by late morning…but this year we are being treated to wonderful vistas.





On Wednesday, Shelly, Yeshi and I traveled to Sarankot. This is a small group of tea houses that are perched on the ridge that separates Lakeside and the Tibetan camp. It is a popular place to go to watch the… Continue

Week Six in Nepal: Celebrating Tihar

I have just returned from spending a week at Bel’s home, celebrating Tihar and sinking deeper into that family. Boy I sure love them. Tihar was its usual festive self…with twinkling lights strung on houses, candles lining the front stoops each night and the kids coming around singing and dancing for money. The younger kids just sing the Bhailo song quickly and go on their way. The older kids bring a boom box, play songs,… Continue
