Snow and Virginia Beach

Edwin finally is here!  After a long horrid confusing visa process that still isn't over, he flew into Dulles last Saturday.  Must blog more about this pisses me off to no end.  This meant a trip to DC for me, which was happy, and a visit with Karen.  I also got lots of salvi groceries and some stuff from Colombia, including my $2.50 Pony Malta.  He's basically hibernated his way through the first week, since it was the last week of school for me before break, and we had an insane amount of meetings and after school things. 

In my continuing tradition of trying to travel here on days when the weather sucks, Edwin and I went to the Virgina Aquariam at Virginia Beach.  At least I only made two wrong turns!

Love the teeth.

On the way back, instead of rain, we had snow! Glad it wasn't the feet that the rest of Virginia got.

Me and the chucho de agua.
The snow, which was conveniently gone by late morning.
Snow was promptly followed by watching the first two hours of Sin tetas no hay paraíso. I've never been a big fan of novelas, but I'm still desperately missing living in the eje cafetero, and have fun picking out places I've been. 

We'll be headed back to Ohio on Tuesday, snow permitting, cat in tow.

Hi Erin, my name is Kristina Trew and somehow I found your blog online. I have also taught ESL outside of the the U.S. for many years. I just got back and I am considering going to UC for a Masters in Ed. I was wondering if you wouldn't mind chatting with my about your experiences and the field in general. I don't know much about ESL or TESOL here in the states and thought that you might be able to give me some advice. My email address is Thanks,
