I received an email yesterday with details of an opportunity to go to China to teach English. Sounded good, and I'm tempted, but I'm not ready yet, and it was to commence in November - and I have a few things to do during that period, not the least that I have another house sit from December 12th.
It looked good though - 3 1/2 months, accomodation provided, return air fares, 3 meals a day in the school cafeteria, and more.
I think there will be some more short term opportunities in China prior to the Olympic Games, so I will hang out to see what is available for me from the middle of January. I continue to do research on this.
Now it all sounds very exciting.
