Sorry about the length of time that has passed since my last post. I moved house and have had endless problems with the internet connection in my new area, however, they have now been rectified and I can finally start posting again! Yay!
In February this year (2013) I packed up my life and moved to Can Tho City on the Mekong Delta in Vietnam. This is a few snaps from my new life.
Pre departure, Brisbane, Australia.
Colourful street in Saigon, Day 1.
First glimpses of Can Tho City, Day 2.
Can Tho Bridge
On a smaller bridge looking over some of the city… (As Can Tho is built along the Mekong Delta, there are many bridges throughout the city.)
Can Tho Airport (Can Tho City has more than 2 million people with most citizens concentrated in a small area. It only takes approximately 15-20 minutes by motor scooter (doing 40km p/h) to travel from one side of the city to the other, and the airport is just 10 minutes from the city centre by scooter.)
My first grocery shopping trip on my bicycle – Week 3.
Public Holiday = Day out with friends on the Mekong Delta, a boat ride through the river and a trip to the Cai Rang floating markets.
Random snapshots of life in Can Tho
Well that’s all for today!! I hope these photos give you some insight into life in Vietnam as an ESL teacher, and if you’re considering this as a new path in your life but hesitating for whatever reason, I hope this post might inspire you to just take a risk and go for it! The Expat life is so amazing, I have so much free time to go where I please, more friends and invitations than I can count and the chance to experience something new every day.
