TEFL Is Over

on Friday, 12 November 2010

So this morning we go to GLV to collect our certificates. We end up leaving at about 2:30pm and after saying goodbye to Brad and Jenny. Me, Matt and Lydiah go to the port, Lydiah heads off back to Hong Kong and me and Matt go to Shenzhen. The ferry is about one hour and is very rough. We arrive and try and find a hostel, but there doesn’t seem to be anything very cheap. We eventually decide to stay at a place recommended by the travel bureau at the port. It is actually a hotel and costs 260Y for a twin room, but as it is just one night we just book it. The taxi takes almost an hour to get there, but it is near the main station, so we can get to Hong Kong easily tomorrow. We spend a bit of time looking around the local area and get some food and use some internet in Starbucks. Tomorrow we have an interview with a kindergarten in Shenzhen, but it doesn’t sound very legit and probably won’t offer us a work visa. We will have to wait and see.
