  • Job search complete!   7 years 45 weeks ago

    Hello Euro-Residents!

    I saw snow this weekend in northern Illinois, not unlike the snow in your pictures from the train. Mom and I gave your address to Grandpa Anderson on Thursday and he was looking it over as we left.

    Love the apartment video - of course we want more! Always good to see you live!

    Hey Carrie and Dave!
    So great to finally check out your blog. Love all the videos and photos we feel like we are right there with you. Hope all is well and that you guys are having fun and getting some great life experiences in Poland. Love your apartment and the Greece video, so beautiful and romantic. Miss you so much and can't wait until we get to see you again.

    Carrie and David,
    We're anxious to see your apartment and the town where you teach. Looking forward to seeing pictures and video soon...and skyping with you!!! Tell us more about your students and the teaching experience once your feet are on the ground.

    All is well here. The weather is turning to fall, temps in the 40s, and the leaves are turning. I was in Chicago for a conference late this week and stayed with my folks. I updated them on your lives - they're both excited for you!

    Enjoy your new home!!!

    Love, Dad and Mom

    I never thought I'd see my daughter's resume written in Polish! Good luck in your search for employment. The rate of job loss here in the US is declining, typically a lagging indicator of economic change, so we're hopeful that a year or so from now things will feel better to more of the community. Unemployment here is just under 10%, reportedly not as bad as some European countries are even in better times. Everything is relative, I guess - even us, as I think of it! Ooohhh, corney!

    We love you both and are confident you'll find what you're looking for! Go get 'em!!

    Wow! Looks like quite the first adventure on your trip! You guys are so good you found it on the first try without even knowing it. The travel spirits must be on your side. It looks like a very beautiful place you stayed in!

    aaaaah! 9 dollars!!

    hope the first leg of your journey is smooth... sorry we never got you over for vegan dinner 2009, but I'm sure there'll be plenty of good eating on your travels, just as soon as you get out of the airport!
