School and Travel

I received word today that I have been accepted to the M.A. program at National Chiao Tung University. I think I am the first English native speaker in the program I have enrolled. It’s a great opportunity but a daunting challenge.

I leave for Chiang Mai early tomorrow morning. Its the annual Chinese New Year pilgrimage to anywhere other than Hsinchu. Should be a fun trip. Spending some time trekking through the northern part of the province and taking a Thai cooking course. Of course no trip to Thailand would be compete without a few sessions of the tortuous local massage. Be back on the 16th.
