Well, we just experienced our first air-raid drill. The sirens go, and everyone stops everything they're doing. The streets are void of traffic, with the exception of two oblivious 'whities', who walk along the barren streets with reckless abandon. Apparently, this is a big deal in case China invades. Most people here just drive down the back streets instead.
Anyways, looks as if Danielle and I are going to accept 'office' jobs, consulting for english learners (it's not teaching, but sort of tutoring) which require a strict dress code. It's easy work, and close by, so we're not going to stress trying to find 'good' jobs...pay is okay, so we're happy.
We'll keep you posted.
