Hi, Kim: Just found your site by wandering around on the expats blog. Gorgeous textiles and photos! You surely know style and color. I'm an ESL teacher (formerly a a lawyer) and have also lived in Paris and D.C. and also in South Africa, Kenya, and most recently Tunisia. I have always wanted to go to Senegal to teach and continue practicing my French. So if you ever come across any good international language schools there let me know. I've looked a bit but it does seem like most are for children, and I mainly teach a bit older student and professionals. Hope we can stay in touch, and happy holidays! Karen ([email protected])
