As many of you know, I have been back stateside for about four months now. The time is at an end. Soon I will be traversing the Pacific once again, to end up in Auckland, New Zealand. Of course, this is all dependent on the results of my working holiday visa application.
I will be working just outside of the city at a Buddhist monastery, Vimutti, for a few months, then WWOOFing it for a bit while I await the results of two potential jobs: one, escorting groups of high school students on tours around Asia and Oceania; two, an engineering position which may be awaiting me in The Netherlands. Time will tell.
In either case, I will be in Texas until Christmas, then hopefully spending my New Year's in NZ, jetlagged and happy. Otsu kare sama desu.
The Japan memoirs are not over... not quite yet. Stay tuned.
