Kate, Your son has probably told you all this already but Manayunk is a very popular part of town. A perfect oasis for college kids, grad students, 20 and 30-something professionals ...just brimming with shops, bars, and restaurants. Parking is a nightmare and public transportation in and out of the neighborhood is not as accessible as other neighborhoods but the young folks don't seem to care too much. Too busy soaking up the atmosphere. I grew up in Pittsburgh and then spent 9 years in the middle of nowhere of North/Central Pa and never imagined moving to the Philadelphia area but I love living here.

My workload is about to increase muchísimo now. I am Dept Chair and I have to start observing, evaluating, and writing up reports on the 9 other dept members. Not too difficult but very tedious and time consuming.

My wife Mary has actually left the classroom and Lower Merion HS and is now a full time Supervisor of Language and ESL teachers in Abington Pa school district.

Wow! 5 kids! That is beautiful!
Take Care. Jim

Kate, look under RECENT BLOG ENTRIES. The one called HIGH SPEED TRAIN is mine. Chip and Martina are on this site but have not responded to me. And Barbara ( I don't remember her maiden name) I think she is the one who dated my roommate John Versteege from Rotterdam. So that's 5 of us from 1982.

Kate, Vivimos muy cerca de Philadelphia. Mi esposa también es profesora de español. Tenemos dos hijas una en 4th grade y la otra freshman de high school.

¿Vienes aquí mucho a visitar a tu hijo? A mí me encanta tomar el metro desde mi casa hasta el centro de Philadelphia para ir al cine, ir a un concierto, ir a un restaurante, ...La próxima vez que vengas a Philly tienes que avisarme de antemano y podemos vernos en la ciudad. Tengo muchas cosas que contarte sobre España y Valladolid porque he vuelto 4 veces desde 1982. Hasta pronto. Jim

Kate, are you still near Erie? Still using your Spanish? I teach Spanish outside Philadelphia.
